  • Garden Greeters
  • Compost Crew
  • Water Lilies
  • Worm Caregivers

If you are currently on a garden committee, please try to join us so you are up-to-date and have the opportunity to give us feedback on how we can improve our process moving forward.

Preparing for the transition

Saturday, September 6th 2014 at 8:30 am, at 407 Violet

Let’s get together at the garden on Violet this Saturday and help Linda tidy up the overgrowth around the edges of the property and get the garden in good shape for the transition to its new owner. Bring gloves, water, sun protection, loppers, pitchforks, machetes, smiles and laughter!

Thanks for your hard work!

Last Saturday we had a great turn out to help with our routine tasks at the garden on Violet:  Marc turned the dirt, Edgar turned the compost, Cindy gave the hen house a luxury makeover, Marilyn planted squash and peas (thanks for donating the peas!), Ellen brought treats for the hens and helped Linda with some general maintenance items.  LIB was in paradise and we wrapped up our day about eleven thirty. Thanks so much for all of your hard work!

Garden Work Party!

Saturday June 14th at  9:00 am

We have had a really great turn out the last two Saturdays so a huge THANK YOU to all who pitched in to help. This is the stuff community gardens are made of!

This weekend we will be gathering (and working!) at the garden on Violet. We hope you can help us with the following items:

407 Violet

Please bring tools if you have them (pitchforks, gloves, garden spades) and help us:

  • Weeding and tidying up the garden beds and pools
  • Harvesting our crops
  • Trim the grass
  • Move water from the sail (our rain barrels are full!)

Please don’t forget to bring your own water to stay hydrated. We look forward to seeing you!

Huge THANK YOU to our Volunteers!

We had an overwhelming response to our call for help for both garden locations this weekend and, thanks to our incredible volunteers, were able to get a lot accomplished. Although some of us met for the first time, everyone was eager to help and we did so much; like we had been working together for years! It is this type of commitment that helps us flourish as a community garden and we are grateful for everyone who has given to help our success. Some of our weekend volunteers are in the process of becoming new members….HOORAY (we did not scare them away!). We thank you so much for helping our garden and our community grow into something awesome!

More Leaves Please!

Now is the time… we need the leaves.

Please if you see some in your neighborhood drop them over the fence via the alley between Hanna and Idlewild, to the east of Highland. The new garden property is 6011 Highland. 

We will be working there too on Saturdays and we will have to go searching for leaves instead of spreading them. If  YOU have not played just this little tiny part … am i guilt tripping you? Heck, do it and feel that glow of  pride, YES! And civic participation, YES! You will be helping to make the future safer, sweeter, stronger .
oh cryin’out loud….thanks if you would drop some leaves over the fence.
