Do you like having a community garden in Seminole Heights? Please support us with your membership!

Being a part of the community garden brings many rewards.  Fresh organic produce of course, but also other benefits like meeting new friends while you enjoy Florida’s sunshine and the great outdoors in a beautiful patch of Old Seminole Heights.  There’s yoga sessions on Saturday mornings beginning again September 8th, and several scheduled gardening sessions especially created for young children (next one also September 8th).

We know we’re an important asset to the neighborhood, and we need more people to be an asset to our efforts.  Are you getting this newsletter from us each month, but haven’t committed yet to becoming a member? Don’t hold back! Go to this link to sign up now.

Or come out on a Saturday morning to ask us any questions you have about joining.  Here’s what you’ll discover — we’re a sociable bunch, the rules aren’t rigid or stifling, decision-making is democratic, and we grow and harvest our garden collectively. It’s a fun place to be and a fun group to be a part of.

Sound good? We’d love to have you aboard with us!

We Need Leaves!

We have two bags of leaves left to mix into our compost. Fall is just around the corner and is sure to decorate our yards with plenty of leaves to keep us going through next year. As you(and your neighbors!) are bagging them up instead of putting them by the curb for pickup, please donate them to the garden. You can either drop them off in the garden, we have a spot just inside the gate from the back alley, or contact us and we can arrange for someone to pick them up.
