The Devils Lake Floating Garden was launched on July 27th! You can see it in the water at Larry's and Mary Rich's dock, 4590 NE Loop Drive.
A good selection of water-loving plants were donated by Bill and Julie Sexton along with seven plants from Bear Valley nursery, including sage, oregano, thyme, and rosemary to test their hydroponic growth capability. The plants will be nurtured by the nutrients in Devils Lake. The progress of the demonstration Garden was reported on at the SOS Committee and DLWID Board meetings in August. Detailed Instructions and cost estimates on building your own Devils Lake floating garden can be obtained from DLWID. This experiment is just one part of vegetative project ongoing and planned by the committee.
