so much has happened since our last blog post…from an empty city lot to a dream in action. a few weeks ago, an amazing group of beautiful friends showed up for our second big work day – and what progress we made! twelve raised beds were built and placed, garbage was collected, foliage was cut back, mulch was spread, and our shed was brought halfway to completion.

we could not have accomplished any of this important work without the help of our friends from Thornapple Evangelical Covenant Church, along with many others who showed up to contribute to the vision of the treehouse community garden! what a blessing our generous volunteers have been.

although there is still a lot of work to be done, we are excited and encouraged by how far we have come…and it’s almost time to plant!

here are the before and after photos, plus a shot of the volunteer team…
