Ampersand has been a bustling hub these days! Hello Spring! Folks have been coming for retreats, our residents are itching to do some earth plastering, and wonderful groups keep arriving for tours of our site. Meanwhile, we are planting and transplanting away for our Spring Plant sales and getting ready for this weekend. Join us!

Mark your Calendar for our first
Spring Plant Sale
April 14
In Madrid, in front of the Mine Shaft Tavern
 We will have kale, chard, lettuce, broccoli, onions, cabbage, flowers and herbs.  Amanda is focused on providing varieties  that will thrive in our local climate. She will be teaching High Desert Gardening at Ampersand on April 28th to make sure that everyone know how to care for these babies. We must have good soil, protection from the spring winds, and a bit of babying so the transplanting goes well.

We will have the summer veggies, more flowers and tomatoes for the next plant sale on May 12th.
