The Community First! Model Park is the space that showcases all the features of our Community First! Village in miniature: five different types of housing options, a vibrant garden, chickens, aquaponics arrangement, and a host of physical structures that are as beautiful as they are useful. The Saturday work events here includes a wide variety of possible activities. Carving out a garden bed with a fork and shovel, planting a bed of tomatoes, turning the compost pile, constructing a beehive roof, watering the seedlings, checking on the worms, and feeding the rabbit are just a short list of what might be done on this day to make a beautiful, productive, and ultimately compelling space to promote the Community First! vision.
Close-toed shoes are a must. Long pants recommended. Hats and long sleeves are helpful. Bring gloves if you have some you like.

This Saturday we'll be working on our aquaponics ponds, building a cedar-picket raised bed, and filling in the empty spaces of our gardens with spring flowers!
Also, our chickens hit a record number of eggs this week: 22 in one day! So we'll have some egg-washing & packing to do.
