It has been a while since we last updated the blog. Most recently we planted native grasses and flowers donated by Prof. Warners, biology professor at Calvin College. Some of these plants will grow to be over 6 feet tall. I hope they start to take off soon so I can see them get big before I leave Grand Rapids for the summer...which leads me to, again, ask what will happen to the gardens in the summer. I think Craig will be around but I don't know how much time he'll have to dedicate to the garden. I wonder if it would be a good idea to start opening the project up to the wider community. Maybe somebody is interested in weeding and harvesting our garden this summer
Whatever happens I hope to see the plant growth documented on ths blog, even if it is over-grown and full of weeds.
On wednesday is Calvin's spring arts festival during which there will be tours of the sites. I hope that lots of people come to see the garden -even if they don't go to calvin.
