GUESS WHAT? Spring is [finally] here!
Even though we have had a rocky start to the year with fickle weather and late frosts, our first few volunteer days have been very successful! We have transplanted and direct seeded salad mix, swiss chard, green beans, beets, carrots, collards, and potatoes in the communal rows. In the next four weeks, our drip-line water system will be upgraded to a much more efficient, larger unit that will require refilling less often. We have expanded and improved the steps down into the garden, to make it safer for all community members to visit us! Finally, we have hung a new sign to help show community members how they can become involved in the garden.
In light of all these great new developments at the garden, we are excited to invite you to our 3rd Annual Spring Garden Party!
Please join us at the garden May 3rd from 12-2 pm to help us celebrate the start of spring and a new gardening season.
This exciting day will feature kid-friendly activities, a composting workshop, and garden tours. All – students, faculty, staff, and community members (kids and adults alike) – are welcome!!!
All-natural hot dogs and almond butter/jelly sandwiches will be provided. Attendees are encouraged to bring a side dish or drink to share for the POTLUCK PICNIC. Please also bring a picnic blanket or chairs.
All plates, napkins, utensils, and cups will be provided. All the material used at the garden party will be compostable, so please do not bring outside materials (such as plastic or paper plates).
RSVP @ our Facebook event and invite your friends!!!
