Milwaukie Lumber delivers to Campbell Community Garden

We continue to make fast progress towards planting day at Campbell Community Garden. Between Friday afternoon and Saturday afternoon CCG volunteers put in 96 hours of work removing sod, hauling compost, and tilling the planting beds.

On Monday morning we had two big stacks of cedar delivered to the garden. A reduced price and free delivery by Milwaukie Lumber, a donation from Greg "Frank" and Michelle Hemer, and $500 from the the Clackamas County Master Gardeners Gray Thompson Community Projects Grant Program, allowed us to purchase enough cedar to edge all of our paths and planting plots. The edging will help to reduce the time needed to keep the beds from encroaching into the paths, making the garden easier to maintain. Our next work day, Saturday May 19th (10am to 1pm) will be spent installing the edging.
Glad we planned a wide gate! The fork lift delivery saves our volunteers the work of hauling the lumber from the street.
