Working the soil has its own special appeal

Members of the North Columbia Environmental Society’s Community Garden group gathered at the garden’s raised beds at the United Church on Monday evening to work the soil and prepare the beds for this growing season. The fine weather made the experience an enjoyable one. Here are a series of photos sent to The Current by Alice Weber:
