Brightside Farm Community Garden
2004 Photo Album

Disking the 2004 Garden ExtensionThis photo album will document activities at the 2004 Community Garden located at the Township's Brightside Farm on Yellow Springs Road. In 2004 the garden is being extended from 12 to 24 plots, essentially by doubling the length of the 2003 garden.
These photos are in small slide show albums. The image changes every 7 seconds and thumbnails allow you to jump to any image.
Plowing the 2004 Extension (4 photos)
This series of four photos show area farmer Newell Burdick plowing the area for the extension to the garden on March 15, 2004. The night after plowing, we had a snow storm followed by more snow and rain in the following two weeks.

The plowed ground did not dry out enough for Newell to disk it until March 29, 2004.
Fencing the new extension and a final discing. (6 photos)
Between April 8 and April 19 (with a week of rain in between), Newell Burdick and Jacob Merriwether got the new fence erected, complete with gates. Before the Merriwether's layed out the twelve new plots in the extension, Newell gave the area one last discing.
