The newly fallen leaves and acorns aren’t the only additions to Elon’s Community Garden lately. This past weekend students worked hard on repainting the wooden fence that surrounds the garden.
Elon alum and former garden manager Andrea made a special appearance and helped out! We’ve missed her unique sense of humor and dedication to the garden.
The end result matched the kind of weather we’ve been having lately- full of sunshine!
A new garden bed was also added. This is what is called a raised garden bed, or also called garden boxes. Benefits of having these structures include keeping pathway weeds out of your garden, prevent soil compaction and erosion, provide good drainage and act as a protective barrier from any potential pests (human or not).
So far into the semester, the garden is in good shape!
Now it’s time rest up from the hard work that’s been done this semester. Have a good fall break everyone!
