In October 2023, In the Garden group members laid the groundwork for Becky's Garden in Community Roots. This included laying cardboard before raking leaves on top of it. This material will break down over the winter, clearing the way for easy spring planting.
Becky's Garden may appear to be inactive, but as winter storms come and go, the leaves, compost, and cardboard are gradually being broken down, adding nutrients into the soil. These components will also smother grass and weeds making for easier spring planting in May.
