KPMG Accounting celebrated their 50th anniversary by donating time to our Project Bloom garden. It was a gorgeous day out, and they did a tremendous amount of work. We really appreciate their efforts! They dug out a new herb garden for us, added compost and brick edge to the newly created garden, created a new pumpkin patch by cutting into the old grass, pulled weeds, and planted many new seeds!
Here is our group of Volunteers from KPMG Accounting Firm. They are celebrating their 50th anniversary by donating their time to our garden projects!
A brief rundown of the plans for the day, for the volunteers.
Digging in to create a new herb garden.
Adding compost and a brick edge to the new herb garden
KPMG volunteers cut into the old grass to create a new pumpkin patch.
Pulling Weeds under the hedges
KPMG volunteers plant Cannas, Cosmos and Cleomes in the Rose bed alongside the greenhouse.
Frank tends to his vegetable garden. Along the fence are hollyhocks, foxglove and alyssum from last year. To the right are marigolds, cosmos and zinnia from this year's seeds.
The KPMG team plants herbs in the prepared bed
Newly planted pumpkin patch has Pumpkins in the center, birdhouse gourds under the supports and sugar baby watermelons in the front.
Newly planted herb bed has pots for mint, chives, oregano and other plants that like to run.
Curly parsley along the bricks, shallots down the center and basil closest to the fence.
Along the greenhouse the path was weeded and new flowers planted. The oak leaf hydrangea in the foreground was planted along the fence in the background. Other plants are destined for the rain garden.
The generous volunteers from KPMG weeded, cleaned, composted and planted a vegetable bed for the Interfaith Nutrition Network, our designated food bank beneficiary. Other gardeners donated tomato plants, beans, peas, basil and more.
