Work Party Reminder

Work Party Reminder!

Soil Shoveling Work Party: Saturday March 23

Big thanks to all those who made it out for last week's bed-raising and garden cleanup project.  Our second work party is this Saturday,10am-12pm.  


This week, we will be placing fresh soil into the Children's Beds.  Soil will also be available for all those who arranged to have their beds raised, and who paid for soil to fill them.  Please come out and lend a hand: we always appreciate your help

The shed is stocked with tools for the garden community to use.  Thanks for keeping it tidy!  
The shed is also stocked with the new volunteer hours log book, so be sure to record any hours you spend helping out with community projects at the garden. 
We hope to get our projects finished this spring so we can all put out feet up this summer and enjoy a community meal or two together. 


Lynn and her helpers are busy getting some of the allotments filled with soil today. Thanks Lynn for receiving the soil at such an early hour! We ordered ten inches of soil for those who paid for the soil this week. That should help fill your gardens. Remember this soil is only for those who paid us for it. If you want us to order some more soil, let us know as soon as possible so we can get it delivered next week.

Thank you, and we hope to see you on Saturday!

  1. My husband, dog and I walked by the community garden today. We live just off of 64th, but had no idea there was a community garden until last week. Everyone is doing so wonderful with the garden, and we were particularly happy to hear there will be accessible gardening in the future. Spring is here and summer is around the corner. We look forward to watching the garden beds bloom and grow! Cheers, The Harder family
