Check out this article in Black Mountain News.
To summarize, rain has made it impossible to start dredging, the decision as to when is up to the contractor at this point.
The good news is all that is happening at the Lakeview Center, now renamed Lakeview Center for Active Aging.
Here is a link to info about Lakeview Center,
and one to their January Newsletter.
Because I receive these in my email, I just received the Black Mountain Rec. Dept online version of the program guide for Winter and Spring 2016. It's amazing. And includes the rec. center that's actually now nearer me, Carver Center. So I need to see about some of the things scheduled over here!
The first that caught my eye was this:
Carver Community Garden: This community garden will re-open with elevated beds in Spring 2016! These beds are great for people who have limited mobility - no kneeling or bending! Rental fee for the regular growing season is $20. Reserve a bed by contacting Jill at the Carver Center.
As I read through I thought, I have used just pots and planters for years, because kneeling was so uncomfortable. Whow, I should really get involved here! Later on I read that the beds have yet to be built, and no way I could help build them. Drat. I will still call and see about reserving a future bed. I did keep some of those giant sunflower seeds from last year!
Yep, I'm doing what all farmers do in January, thinking about which seeds...
Those catalogs are so beautiful.
