Nothing like planting for the future. Next year visitors to the Acadia Community Garden will be able to munch on sweet yellow raspberries.
Boys were looking for a service opportunity and one that helped the community. This was a great pick. The Garden & Art Society (http://growingacadia.ca/) welcomed our service, and helped us get things setup. Mary Crutcher, our resident Cub and garden expert, also came out to provide horticultural guidance. Our old Leader Matt Whitely saw able to provide us with 15 large pails from his painting business to help up transport the plants. It was great to have everyone pitching in and getting this all together.
Thanks to Stephanie, Joanne, Laurie from the society for setting things up and helping us plant.

|The source of the raspberries was from the back yard. The base crew had to dig them up and put them into pails||Here's what a hedge of raspberries should look like next year.|
|Base crew getting experimental with the floats. Interesting tri-layer drink here.||I can taste all 3 flavors separately. Cool.||The crew has to wait for the transport guy to come back with more pails||It's a tough job waiting.|
