The Chiloquin Community Garden behind the old KTHFS Dental Modular building is coming together! Pictures are attached. This weekend, 15 people who attended the KTHFS Food Security Program’s Permaculture Design Class put in and planted 14 raised garden beds. Another 10 beds will be put up in the upcoming couple of weeks. All of the raised beds were built by the Chiloquin High School woodshop students. Class attendees also planted a 3 sisters garden with 60 corn seeds, beans, and pumpkins. In previous weeks, choke cherries, currants, elder berries, apple trees, pear trees, cherry trees and crabapple trees were planted. The harvest will be made available to the Chiloquin community; details of distribution are yet to be determined but tribal elders, food insecure, and those who help in the garden will be given priority.
The site is open most weekdays from 10:00-3:00 for anyone who wants to come help out (a release of liability is required). If the gate is open, the garden is open. Gloves and gardening tools are available on site. For more information, please contact Perri McDaniel.
