Our gardeners Cindy and Marc, along with resident photographer Ellen, joined the celebration as Seminole Heights Community Gardens won Readers’ Pick for best community garden. Thank you!
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.
Have you joined us for Yoga in the Garden yet? We meet Saturday mornings at 9:30am for a 1/2 hour session of standing poses only. There is no need to bring a mat – but wear shoes since you will be in a garden setting.
Please help us welcome our guest yoga instructors for the next two sessions:
March 9 – Amishay
March 16 – Mika
Tish returns for these dates:
We’re located at 6114 River Terrace and look forward to meeting you!
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.
Thank you to all the garden members who helped prepare, and then show off our garden, and thank you to everyone who visited!
The Seminole Heights Garden Tour is coming up fast – have you purchased your tickets yet?
We hope you do, so you can visit us on Sunday, October 28th.
