community garden start


i'm very excited to hopefully be starting a little community garden in the backyard. (just gotta clear it with the neighbors who share the yard.)

today jen and mati and i attended a free urban composting class at the awesome Garden for the Environment. what a great little place. SF has so much cool stuff going on.

then we went to Flora Grubb for some inspiration (though not a lot of purchasing—expensive). but look at those colors! you can view that succulent wall bigger in my new community garden set. ;-)


we're starting with compost and beds, but we also hear chickens clucking in our future...
here's a short article and video about chicken owners in the bay area.

That is awesome, congratulations! I'm planning my own garden beds / composting adventures right now. I'd like chickens as well, but I'm a little nervous about neighborhood kitties and such. Can't wait to see how yours go!
