D-Day (1,000 New Gardens Dig Day)

On Saturday April 11th, 1,000 New Gardens’ volunteers will take the first step towards revitalizing Missoula’s legacy as the Garden City. We will remove sod and turn the soil over with compost/manure at 10 test plot gardens. After all of the hard work over the last two months, we will open our hands wide and plunge them into the soil, planting the vision of 1KNG. We graciously thank our 10 households for allowing their lawns to be modernized for the needs of the 21st century.

This is your chance to thread the needle of nature and society, finding your place between the two and ways to use nature without damaging it. It is important, now more than ever that we help make the ecstatic skin of the Earth flourish.

Of course the land is not easy to work, so WE NEED YOUR HELP. We are asking you to donate an hour, or 12, to help realize the goal of 1,000 new gardens in the Garden City. It is not going to happen over night–the soil took thousands of years to develop and it is not about to give up its nutrients to your chioggia beets without proper tending.

April 11 is our first chance to experience nature together as a community. Please join us by emailing 1000newgardens@gmail.com with any time slot you are available.
