Thanks to Mercer for their hardwork at West Vernon!

Last week, we had a successful workday at West Vernon thanks to the help of Mercer volunteers! With their help, we are testing some farming techniques at West Vernon that we will hopefully implement in other of our gardens.

We built a mini farm, a nursery station, mulched the pathways, added more shade, extended the drip irrigation lines to include surrounding trees and built 2 new redwood tables!

Mercer also donated money towards this project! We are so grateful to have worked with such an amazing group.
