May 7th Build Day!

Since Saturday, February 5th 2011, the Escalante Community Garden Team has been working endlessly to create our garden.  Here are some pictures from our build day last Saturday, May 7th...

Tina planting a little love

A group of ECG volunteers planting some flowers in a grow tube before the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony this Saturday.  Click here for some more information on grow tubes.

Carla planting beautiful herb/flower pots.  Container gardens are an easy, inexpensive way to beautify your garden!

Pam giving our lettuce some much appreciated H2O

Luke doing a great job watering our flowers

Gretchen and Dario working on creating a beautiful water feature.  To protect our water system, we constructed a cage to place around the spiget and filled the cage with river rock.  It looks stunning and will be great protection for our irrigation system!

Beth and Luke found this beautiful snail while gardening on Saturday!  We enjoyed the snails company for a while and then relocated the snail to another area.  Click here for more information on managing snails and slugs in a garden.

The tomatoes are growing wonderfully in our salsa garden.  To grow your own salsa garden, just plant tomatoes, tomatillos, onion, garlic, cilantro, and a variety of peppers in a designated area and voil√†... You've got yourself all of the ingredients for some delicious, homegrown salsa!
