Earth Day Work Day and BBQ!

Earth Week was a busy time all across Missoula, and the UM FLAT celebrated with a volunteer work day and BBQ! With the theme of backyard renovation, we had a variety of projects including a new bike parking area, a brick patio for the cob oven and getting the garden ready for the growing season!

Here are some pictures of spring progress around the yard…..

The garden beds are now lined with re-used logs to keep away pesky grass:IMG_0597

The hot bed is already flourishing with mustard greens:IMG_0596

The spring interns installed several rain barrels and experimenting with soaker hose:IMG_0591
