Madison House Spring 2014

Like the American bittersweet, so too vanishes the time with our Spring term’s Madison House volunteers. Thankfully quite a few of the team have said that they’ll be coming back for fall. Some have even said that they’ll pop in now and anon to work the garden’s soil this summer. As graduating Project Leader Christine Wehner said, “You’re not getting rid of me that easily!”
This was a great crew and they accomplished mighty deeds. Our new exterior fenceline beds, now planted with varieties of native plants, are largely due to their sweat and labor. So too with many of the vegetable beds. April 25th was their last visit to the garden but it was raining very heavily, so we celebrated the season with laughter and munchables in the back of the nearby Dickinson building, then trudged out for a parting look at the upright asparagus.
