March 24, 2012 Baldock Garden Work Party




At an I-5 rest stop just south of Wilsonville. our chapter is created a garden 4’ X 400’ that celebrates Oregon’s largest solar field; it is a collaboration of PGE, ODOT, and OSU Extension Master Gardeners. This project is called the Baldock Garden and was completed by Master Gardeners ™ on March 24. Come see next time you’re traveling northbound on I-5!
