With A Little Help From My Friends

Sustainable OKC is hosting a workshop to install a raised bed garden in my yard!

It will be Saturday, February 27, at 10 a.m. Register here.

Ron Ferrell and Randy Marks will be leading the project. The idea is to nurture a garden community, where eventually we can reach out to this group and say—”Hey! I want to build a raised bed this weekend. Who can help me out?”—much like people come together to raise a barn or build straw-bale homes.

If you’re a frequent reader, you know we moved in August and left behind our raised bed. Our new yard is basically a blank canvas, which is both a little intimidating and exciting. It’s been a test of my patience, but like with most projects, money and time are the limiting factors. And we’ve had more pressing issues, like leaky plumbing, flickering lights, near non-existent insulation, and a clogged sewage line to distract me. But because of this upcoming workshop, I will have a spring garden and hopefully others will be inspired to do the same. The long-term plan will be to transform this area into a lush, beautiful kitchen garden. Soon I’ll be sketching up the plans. They’ll be posted here, along with the progress from the workshop and other projects.

  1. Hey Tricia. This is so exciting. I look forward to seeing the finished results. We had a garden at our house last year and are thinking about making raised beds this year since we have issues with thick clay soil. Can’t wait to see how it turns out. 🙂

  2. Man, last time I helped you build a raised bed it was free! 😉 Really though, considering that “spots are limited” I should make sure other people have the chance to sign up for the fun before I take another turn. $5 is a good deal.

  3. tricia: i can’t get access to the page to pay for the garden workshop.

    if the link set up correctly, or is it just my computer?

    thanks. nancy cain
