Efforts will bring higher garden beds to Bethesda Park

Scout teacher is helping gardeners provide the food they need.

Thanks to Gabriel Wenberg’s efforts, two high garden beds near the tennis courts in Bets Park are waiting to be planted with leaves, tomatoes, or pine nuts.

In April, Warrenberg, the first Presbyterian Warren Church Group 8, approached Warren to see if there was any interest in the eagle project. “Major gardeners want to build some high-altitude garden beds,” he said.

Wenberg said. That worked out well for him.

At best, the product goes to charities. “The harvested plants – whatever grows in them – will be donated to local food banks and soup kitchens” he said.

I met my uncle, Jim Bukkovsky, an engineer. Weinberg said. He spent 10 hours, perhaps more, drawing illustrations for this.

Two 36-inch, 6-foot-by-10-foot boxes were shown to city staff, gardeners and scooter leaders.

Each group approved the design. “We got all the signatures in one day.” Weinberg said.

The project has come a long way and is well on its way to re-approval.

The original design of the 36-inch-tall beds was overturned when a wheelchair pass by.

Wenberg decided to lower the height to make the beds accessible to people with disabilities.

The new concept of 24-inch high beds was quickly approved and construction continues.

Lacher wood – life expectancy up to 70 years – provided by Camp Ranger Michael Kron Senior Wheels, Washer and other accessories by Lowe and Esse Hardware. Generator – During construction days, a family meeting was being held in a tent where workers usually plugged in their tools – efforts were being made for real value.

In three weeks, labor was provided by Wenberg, colleagues Scouts and parents – a total of more than 20 people.

“Construction began on the first Saturday in August” he said.

August was a rainy month, but “We always go out in the hour” Weinberg said.

Once the beds are built, the wood is covered with 6mm plastic to prevent damage. Wenberg has two to three inches deep stone floor at the bottom of the beds. On top of that there is fertilizer from the city – four cubic yards in each bed.

At the end of this season, the owner of the garden, Chris Whitaker, said that the group would only plant leaves – spinach and cabbage. In the spring there will be a whole plant. The product is there to take – if a traveler likes the look of tomatoes, they are encouraged to take one. In general, the product goes to charities.

The main gardeners were very pleased with Wenberg’s work. “We Look Good” There is Whitaker.

And, that they are accessible to people with disabilities “It Was an Unexpected Reward” She said.

Although the project was in the early stages of delays, major gardeners were limited in their choice of planting this year, and it went well after the project began.

“I Expect It to Take a Long Time” Weinberg said. The amount of work that my volunteers did was amazing. I could not do this without their help. ”

“Everything I Want It to Be” he said. They are amazing.
