We’re holding this month’s meeting at The Wine Bar Cafe, at 6428 North Florida Avenue. The meeting starts at 6:30pm, but get there a little early because we’re told that the cafe is planning a free wine and cheese tasting on Tuesday.
Join us for Children in the Garden sessions starting again Saturday, September 8, 2018, from 10 a.m. – 11 a.m. at our Seminole Heights Community Gardens, located at 6114 River Terrace, Tampa, FL 33604.
Activities are most appropriate for ages 4 – 8.
Children will learn how to grow a garden, and participate in garden related crafts and games. A parent or guardian needs to attend with their child. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the garden where we grow communally; most people participate on Saturday mornings.
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.
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.
