What a great weekend! Took the Square Foot Gardening class at FVCC on Saturday and recommend it for all gardeners!! Great information and wonderfully helpful instructor. FVCC is offering it 3/20, 4/24, and 5/15. Well worth taking.

Please check out the Free the Seeds event happening March 6-8. Seed giveaway on Saturday March 6, 9-noon at FVCC plus several Zoom classes. Take time during these cold days to learn how to improve your gardens.

Keep in mind that we will have an initial garden get-together towards the end of March. Will get that date posted soon. So excited for our first year at the Evergreen Community Garden.

THE FENCE IS INSTALLED!

January 11, 2021

We had 2 generous people that were willing to fund the fence installation AND Mild Fence had an early opening. We hope you will stop by and see the progress, just don’t let your dogs leave us any surprises, please. Photos are coming, once I figure out how to do that.

Check out the Flathead Valley Community College website for some continuing education classes in the Home and Garden section. “Seed Starting, Square Foot Gardening, Building Raised Garden Boxes and Grow More Food! fvcc.edu/continuing-education.

Fence Progress

We spoke with local fence companies for our garden project (don’t want the deer eating our produce). Mild Fence offered the best price and style for just under $4,000. We put down a deposit and have reserved our spot in the construction line-up for the spring. It’s been a busy year for building here in the valley so it was very important that we are now in the queue!

Laying the foundation

Thanks to the generosity of Dirk Lybeck, the Ever-green Community Garden was tilled On October 16. Mr. Lybeck used his tractor to turn over the soil in our 120’x75′ space. Have to say it was fun to watch and the dirt smelled so good.
