Even in summer we’re growing

The heat has been brutal – we’re at close to 150 days where the temperature hasn’t dipped below 70 degrees! Despite this we’ve had things growing all summer: okra, of course, and sweet potatoes. Here are a few more of the green things in our summer garden.

Garden members Doris and Ellen hosted the Davis Islands Garden Club for a visit to our garden on April 19th. The Garden Club has been incredibly generous, helping us fund important improvements as we develop our space: our water stations and the new entrance to our garden (pictured above).
Doris writes:
It was an amazing morning!  The weather was perfect … the garden looked beautiful.  We had several members of the garden club show up … and they would also like to pop in on a Saturday morning to garden with us.  I don’t know who had a better time … them or us!

Our garden portal + events!

We are working on a new entrance to our garden. Here is a preview:

We are making it even easier to visit our community garden! Soon we will no longer have to use our *kind* neighbor’s driveway for access.

Mark your calendars:

We are celebrating our 10th!!! Earth Day Birthday this year! Join us for an open house and potluck 10am – 12pm on Saturday April 20th. Bring a dish to share and your own plates (we have utensils).

Art in the Garden returns to our garden on April 27th, 10am – 11:30am. All are invited to come to the Garden and create an art work inspired by the beauty of nature around you. Many supplies will be available – lots of colors of paint, oil pastel crayons, scissors, glue, pictures for collage. Paint on paper or cardboard, palm fronds or rocks. Local artists will be assisting. Plein Air painters are welcome. No charge, but donations towards the supplies are appreciated.

All of this is possible due to the generosity of Tish and Tim Ganey, who allow us to garden on their property.
