Sept 2011

One sign of a healthy garden is the quality of critters that we can find there.  Sebastian found this lovely cricket one afternoon.  We also have some beautiful worms aerating our soil, which provides great food for our produce.  The community garden does not allow chemicals, but who needs chemicals to grow wonderful food? Chemicals would destroy the healthy environment that allow beneficial insects to exist.

    We measure the healthiness of our garden by the number of newts we find when we clean up the winter grasses in the spring.

    We don’t get many amphibians, since the garden is not near water, but we do get lots of bees, butterflies, crickets and worms.
