Important 2017 Garden Dates

On Friday, the weather was so perfect it felt like a crime to be inside (especially since I am not returning to work post-surgery until Monday), so I started on the summer-long path weeding project and continued with that on Saturday morning. Many people enjoying the weather stopped by and several asked a few questions. If you are a new visitor to the garden, please feel free to ask questions of the garden member present, such as: Are dogs welcome? (Yes, if they are on a leash!) Also feel free to check out our FAQ section.

One of the most commonly asked questions is: How can I become a member? The answer is: Simply attend a garden meeting for an orientation! Once you accept the invitation to the Google group, you can sign up for garden hours. For more details of membership, including how to sign up for a garden plot, please visit our membership FAQ.

Garden meetings are at 11 am, followed by workdays. Meetings are scheduled for the following days: Saturday, May 13
Sunday, June 11
Saturday, July 8
Saturday, September 9
Sunday, October 15

On Sunday, August 13, there will be a workday with no meeting.

The garden has two tag and bake sale fundraisers slated for 2017.  On Saturday, May 20, the first tag and bake sale will take place from 10 am–3 pm. The second fundraiser will happen on Saturday, September 16, 10 am–3 pm.

Please visit the community garden, open to all when the gate is open. We look forward to seeing you this season!

Ladybugs in the garden. If you saw me in the garden this weekend, it may have looked as if I was talking to them. But I was actually talking to the worms, mostly apologies for relocating them as I unearthed them while weeding the path.
