This year, as usual we began our journey at the Atlantic County Utility Authority (ACUA).  In each year, in their greenhouse we have found a home for our seedlings to grow. Through their generosity we have acquired rich soil to add to our garden boxes. We are thankful for these community partners and their willingness to help us continue this work.

The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just the body, but the soul.
— Alfred Austin

Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace.
— May Sarton

Preparing our beds proved to be a lot of hard work, but as we have learned...  many hands make work much more fun and a lot easier...

The beds are ready and we've left enough room in the garden so our angels would have room to dance.
