The new community garden on the property of Lynden United Methodist Church has decided on a name. It is called God's Little Acre. This garden is organized so individual families can have their own plot to produce food. There is also a communal section of the garden where last year's Five Loaves Farm hoophouse was put up this weekend. The gardeners will be able to get some great tomatoes from the hoophouse. They will also plant some of the taller crops (corn, pole beans)in the communal section.
It is great to see the garden taking shape. To see early season crops pushing through the soil, and see the diversity of the plots. There are interesting patterns, and structures already developing.
