Greenhouse work days

We will be working at the greenhouse in Reservoir Park this week: Tuesday at 8:00 am and Thursday from 3:00 pm to 5:30 pm.

We have almost two beds seeded with onion, Swiss chard, kale, collards, Chinese greens and carrots.

This week, we will continue to clear out the beds and to chop down the tree growing in the greenhouse, if someone can bring a hand saw and loppers.

The mulch pile is producing some nice compost, but we would like to build some compost bins for food waste. Old wooden skids (pallets) work well for this.

Please also bring water for the newly planted seeds. Old plastic gallon jugs are a good size to work with.

Remember to wear long pants and long-sleeve shirts, closed shoes and work gloves. The mosquitos are fierce at the greenhouse!

If you have access to thin, fresh bamboo, about 12' long, we can start to create the frames for the hoop houses.

Thank you all for your enthusiasm. We are rebuilding a healthy, connected Harrisburg!


Please bring any of these items for the work days:
garden shovel
hand saw or limb saw
pruners or lopper
tap water or rain water in gallon jugs
scissors or knife
mortar mix, trowels and mixing bucket to rebuild the cold frames (and someone who knows how to do this) :-)
