This is the site on Saturday morning.
The address is 489 Marina Place in Benicia. It is off 5th Street one block from Military. Being a front yard anyone can visit the site. I'm sure that you will have the courtesy not to trespass or disturb the generous community minded residents that live here.

|Project leader Elena introducing the plan for the day|
This project is one of 4 Food Forest installations planned this spring by Benicia Community Gardens. There is a little on their website now and hopefully more is coming soon.
|The grey bin is for construction waste. We found 43 cents!|
|There is a certain irony that this actually a front yard|
Then it was lunch time.

|Planting 2 Southern High Bush Blueberries on the berm|
|Coffee grounds and soil acidifier were added for the Blueberries|
Nick said this Improved Meyer Lemon was the first tree he had planted in his adult life.
Kristen and Nick are receiving a Food Forest at their Benicia home in May.
|The face of success|
We will be installing another Food Forest in Benicia on March 14 2015. Details will follow.
I'd better start planning!
May you be inspired and in-joy,
