Our April garden planning meeting will be Monday, April 17th at 6:30pm, at the Seminole Heights Branch Library located at the SE corner of Central and Osborne. We will be wrapping up last details for our Earth Day Birthday celebration as well as discussing transitioning the garden into the summer season. Join us!
Join us on Earth Day, April 22nd, as we host our open house and birthday celebration. If you haven’t been by lately, come take a tour before the garden goes (mostly) dormant for the summer. We’ll be open starting at 10am and will give out little seedlings as long as they last. It’s our birthday gift to you, our community.
We hope to see you then!
A huge thank you to Madeline Baker for our new look and logo – we love it!
Our Google calendar feeding the calendar to the right is a little wonky at the moment. >>>
We’re hoping it will all straighten out after the upcoming change to Daylight Savings Time this Sunday, 3/12/2017. You didn’t forget, did you?
We’re in the garden at 6011 Highland most Saturdays from 9am – 12pm – stop by and visit if you see a member working in the garden. And our monthly planning meeting is Monday, March 20th at 6:30pm (not 5:30!).
A reminder that our garden planning meeting is Monday, February 20th at 6:30 pm at the Seminole Heights Branch Library (SE corner of Central Avenue and Osborne). Yes, we checked and the library is open!
Please save your small yogurt cups! We’re going to plan an Earth Day/birthday celebration in April, and we’d like to be able to give away seedlings in those cups. We’ll discuss this and other projects on Monday evening.
We schedule the evening of the third Monday of each month to discuss all pertinent topics related to keeping our garden bountiful and our organization thriving. Everyone is welcome.
Please join us!
It’s a gorgeous time of year. We haven’t been posting much because we’ve been busy in the garden: harvesting and planting. We could definitely use some rain so the Water Lilies didn’t have to work so hard, but everyone tries to help give the garden a good soak on Saturdays.
We’re typically in the garden on Saturdays from 9am – 12pm – sometimes a little earlier, sometimes a little later. Stop by (6011 Highland) and we’ll give you a tour!
This past Saturday we hosted a group of USF student volunteers participating in their annual Stampede of Service. The volunteers arrived bright and early, the weather cooperated, and we all got to work. We spent the morning pulling weeds all around the edges and down the rows, turned the compost and sifted dirt, watered the plants that needed it, and had many interesting conversations about growing organic food. Many of the students took home greens (kale, collards, mustard greens) as well as tomatoes and lemongrass which we were so happy to share.
Thank you to the garden members who came out and provided guidance for the students, and Denise for bringing the refreshing lemon water!
