Garden Prep, Clean Up and Care

I know it still feels like winter, but this is a great time of year for gardeners and farmers.  We are in full swing planning for this year's growing season.  Each year we try something a little different.  This year in our main garden we're going to put in some companion plants known as the three sisters-corn, beans, and squash.  The beans add nitrogen to the soil, the corn supports the beans as they grow, and the squash provide shade and help reduce weeds.  We will be relocating our pollinator garden to a sunnier location and adding in Black-eyed Susans, Coneflowers, Milkweed, and others yet to be determined.  The Marble Springs gardens enhance the beauty of the site, while also helping us to educate our visitors.  Volunteers are an important part of their success and help make this possible. If you would like to be a part of the clean up, prep and/or care of these gardens, just express interest and we will be in touch!
