On a warm and foggy late October morning, “Lowes Heros” volunteer employees from Sanford Lowes gathered to help a local community’s non-profit organization, as they do every year. This year’s help was the building of a tool shed for Sanford Community Garden. The “Heros” brought the necessary materials with them, and along with help from Sanford Springvale Mousam Way Land Trust managed to frame up and side the shed, located inside the fenced-in garden area.
More Heros came back later to raise the roof. Sanford Community Garden is part of the Pence Ecology Center, located on the Trust’s 110 acre McKeon Environmental Reserve in Springvale. This shed will be put to good use housing the various garden tools and soil amendments for these organically gardened raised beds, described here: https://mousamwaylandtrust.org/2019/03/07/sanford-community-garden/
