Hi all! There is much going on now that the frost date has passed, so I need to fill you all in on some upcoming dates for our 2012 community garden season. EVERY THURSDAY we will be meeting weekly at Jardin Maravilloso to work on clean up, planting and development of new garden features. There is much to do, not only to get our garden spruced up for spring, but also to prepare for upcoming arrivals of a shed, picnic tables, benches, etc. that will be joining our garden this season! A huge thank you to Palmetto Pride and Healthy Greenwood Neighborhoods for grant funding for 2012! You'll be seeing lots of changes as a result, so we hope you'll come check out what's going on and get your hands dirty. And please don't forget, the entire family is always welcome at our community garden.
Here is a list of dates, times, and details for the upcoming month:
Thursday April 19 and 26, May 3, 10, 17, 24, and 31 from 4- 8p.m.: Informal garden work night and some planting! Feel free to drop in for as long as you are able anytime between 4p-8p. If you are able, please bring handtools, kneeling pads, buckets, shovels, rakes, wheelbarrows or weedeaters.
Saturday April 28th from 9a- noon: Great American Cleanup: Join us for this special event sponsored by Palmetto Pride to help clean up the areas around the community garden and La Puerta de Esperanza. Details below.
How else can you help?
If you are interested in starting seedlings to transplant into our garden or donating plants for our spring planting, please let us know! Donations are tax-deductible. We are also looking for volunteers to help with mowing or weedeating around the garden property. This does not have to occur during the organized work times, but at your convenience. If you are interested in helping with this, please email us!!
Finally- know someone who might be interested in the community garden? Please, please, please pass this information on to them, and let us know of any new friends we can add to our email list.
Thank you so much for your support of the garden and our Greenwood community. Look forward to seeing you at the garden!
