Ferndale Friendship Community Gardens

Following our regular walking route east of town takes us past the Ferndale Friendship Community Gardens.Not a year round community gardens, it's a little too early in the season to see gardening activity going on there, so for now, a rusty tin man stands guard over the raised beds, other garden sculptures and buildings.
It's a small community garden with under thirty raised beds and a small orchard off to one side. A welcoming picnic table sits between a sturdy looking tool shed in one corner and a small pergola in the other.
With their cover crops removed, two raised beds looked as if someone has recently given them some attention while the rest wait for warmer temperatures.
As our daylight hours grow longer, we find ourselves walking past these gardens more often now. It will be fun to watch as their gardeners work the soil and the plants start to grow.
