Some Agraria “magic” happened these last couple of weeks—at least, it looks like magic to those of us who saw a beautiful garden fence appear just outside the office windows! First, Gabby and Matthew felled black locust trees—short-lived but hard-wooded trees that are numerous at Agraria—from the woods behind the offices and dragged them to the community garden area by the farmhouse. Next, they dug holes 3 feet deep for the felled-tree posts to sit in. Some steel mesh fencing was ordered and applied. And finally, they crafted wooden gates and attached them for future gardeners to walk through. The transformation of this area has begun. We’ll continue to document the progress with photos and posts, but we invite everyone to see how it all turns out in person on our Family Garden Day, May 19!
