Garden Tour - Almost Spring!!

Although most gardens are pretty dormant in Feb and early March, the Elderberry gardens are still producing a lot of green food!  Today the gardeners gave a tour to some of our newer members, showing off beautiful kale, tasting broccoli, examining the sprouting garlic and talking about plans for the 2018 gardens.  At Elderberry there are 4 very large garden areas.  Three of these are managed by the garden group, and one area is set aside for individual beds for those who want a bed or two but don't want to work the big gardens. 

It was a lovely day to tour the gardens - sunny and cool.  In addition to the beauty of the gardens, this week our 150 acres of woods and trails were alive with trout lillies, spring beauties, bloodroot and trillium.  Spring is on the way!

Gardeners Vonda, Dave, Leslie and Karolyn show off the east garden to our newest members, Stewart, Karen and Linda
