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 so excited about our new sign, featuring our logo designed by Madeline Baker. A huge thank you to member and past president Denise Moore for making this happen!
It’s actually pretty amazing how much we’ve accomplished at our new location in less than a year. There is still much to do, but one of the biggest projects on our wish list just got checked off with the recent installation of four faucet heads (nay, water stations!) strategically placed across the garden property.
They’re connected to a well, maintaining the distinction for us of operating sustainably off the city grid. And now suddenly, raising a flourishing garden of organic fruits and vegetables has never been easier.
We wish to recognize garden members Lynelle and Tony for all their planning and project management; and lots of other garden members assisted as well.
We also share our heartfelt gratitude for the generous grant support from the Davis Islands Garden Club ($1000) and the Hillsborough Soil & Water Conservation District Challenge ($600 for labor) which funded the handiwork of a licensed plumbing team and the necessary materials. Thank you, thank you!
Thank you to all the members who helped us tie down the garden this week before the impending storm Irma. We will not be working in the garden Saturday 9/9/2017.
Good luck to everyone!
A huge thank you to Madeline Baker for our new look and logo – we love it!
