Help transform an under-producing, root-bound garden bed into a nectar feast for the pollinator community and a visual feast for the human one. Visitors who drop by will have the chance, depending on the time they come by, to:
move existing plants, excavate soil and roots, lay landscaping fabric, return soil to the bed, sip herbal tea, meet surprise guests, and exchange ideas about gardening.
