SWEPS Garden Day a Huge Success

The SWEPS Garden Day was a true success. Mike Spranger and friends came in on Monday the 3rd and brought in dirt to mix with fertilizer and fill the tables and buckets. The Tuesday activities went great thanks to Kelly and Janell (Extension office). Activities included planning squares, marking them with flour, learning several planting techniques and actually doing all the planting. Those attending sure had a ton of fun as we planted the SWEPS garden tables, planted garden buckets to take home and planted a few garden buckets to be shared with those who could not attend. Kelly and Janell will be coming back on July 2nd, Aug 6th and Sept 3rd to do additional gardening classed. Watch for updates as the days approach.
