Over the past weekend, Eco-Villagers re-shaped an existing neglected raised bed. For a few years, this area behind the Bimini Terrace building has had a large triangle-shaped raised bed.  The bed was a little too big to garden easily; one would have to lean over and stretch out to reach things, or step in the garden. Lately some mint had been spreading its way through the triangle… not an entirely bad thing, but mint can spread and take over if it’s not contained. 

Alejandra was interested in planting a new garden in that spot, so she organized a work party to reclaim it. Below are a few photos of the new rectangle-shaped raised bed.

Looking forward to seeing what Alejandra grows here next!
