It is that time of year to get soil ready for planting. On May 23, ten volunteers, teens to octogenarians, came out to the Edible Gardens, located at 5001/2 Browns Trace Road to clear grasses and weeds for planting. This property is owned by the Town of Jericho and is being used for an Edible Landscape Project, initiated and managed by Ann Gnagey and Tom Baribault. Thanks to the volunteers for helping; as the saying goes, "many hands make light work".
Once the garden area is cleared of field grasses, potatoes, onions and squash will be planted. Since this is a deer migration corridor, the hope is that they will show no interest in those crops during the growing season.
This project is ongoing through the summer, then into harvesting season in September. If you'd like to help with the project, please contact Ann Gnagey at TTJericho.email@example.com, and you can make arrangements with her on planning a day to come and help.
