- The Armory plot is booming, jam-packed full of vegetables, berries, and ﬂowers. The barrage of humid sunny heat followed by dense rainstorms allows many plants to ﬂourish.
- In Meyersdale the Levi Deal Mansion Bed and Breakfast is excited to get more rain barrels, as well as help set up a community garden there.
- Similarly, the West Newton community is taking steps with their garden club and city council to put one in place, most likely a ﬂowerbed for lower maintenance. One way to keep the weeding down more is to have a no-till bed. You put lime down, the eight layers of wet newspaper down, then mulch on top about a foot thick.
