There has been a lot of growth with Basin Electric’s garden throughout the last few weeks.
In celebration of Earth Day, April 22, we first announced we would be planting a garden on our lawn.
Since then, we asked our garden volunteers to help name the garden. Employees offered possible names and volunteers cast their votes. The winning name was Basin’s Backyard Garden.
Next, we asked the volunteers to choose the top twenty vegetables they’d like to grow in the garden. Here’s a list of the planned crops.
And yesterday morning, a crew began moving dirt and tilling the official spot of the garden, located near where we decorated the first Christmas tree a couple of years back.
The plan is to plant the garden on May 30, starting at 2 p.m.
Several employees have donated plants including Steve Ellefson, who donated 36 pepper plants. Find out why he wanted to give to the garden.
