Thanks from Barriere Community Garden

It looks like the Community Garden will be in great shape when Communities In Bloom judges arrive

To the editor;

We would like to say a big thank you to the private donations made through the Pepsi Refresh Program, Mike Fennell, the District of Barriere Water Committee, and the North Thompson Valley Garden Club members who pitched in at the work bee for the wonderful new irrigation system we now have at the Community Garden.

Also, a great big thank you to Quality Contractors, Jack and Paul, for donating the gravel and then packing it on our brand new pathway.

A great big “shovel full of gravel” to the eight or nine committee members and plot holders, who gave their all in the rain to spread the gravel so it could be packed.

A special thank you to Franz and Doris Friesinger for the composting bins they built and are teaching us how to use correctly.  A big thank you also to the plot holders for keeping their plots neat and tidy in spite of the rain.

It looks like the Community Garden will be in great shape when the Communities In Bloom judges arrive on July 18.  Keep up the great work everyone!
