A great time was had by all

It was a fantastic afternoon in the garden for the 2nd Annual Seminole Heights Garden Tour. The weather behaved, the plants behaved, and we had more than 70 people visit our little garden.

  • Tues. 10/16 – monthly garden meeting will start promptly at 6:30pm, at the Seminole Heights Branch of the library (address in the calendar>>)
  • Sat. 10/20 – we’re gardening, and yoga is at 9:30am
  • Sat. 10/27 – gardening, yoga at 9:30am and last minute tidying of the garden because…
  • Sun. 10/28 – We’re a stop on the Seminole Heights Garden Tour! This is one of the rare times when we’re open on a Sunday. Get a ticket for the tour and come see how we’ve grown. Tour is from 1 – 5pm.

Yoga in the Garden

Yoga in the Garden is happening every Saturday! Tish Ganey, Registered Yoga Teacher and owner of Take Me To The River Yoga Studio invites you to a 30-minute session at the community garden on Saturdays, 9:30 to 10:00 am, at 6114 River Terrace. This is an excellent introduction to yoga’s benefits to both mind and body… Tish will take you through a basic routine of standing poses, teaching and training. No mats are required, but shoes (any kind) are recommended. Donations are accepted and support the community garden.
