February All Gardener Work Day a Huge Success!

Saturday, February 22nd was a gorgeous day to get the mulch laid down in the aisles to curb the Bermuda grass at the garden!  Fourteen high school student volunteers worked to weed, mulch and clean up trash and it all looks fabulous.  Thanks to Angela Glover for arranging for a free truck load (yes I said FREE) of mulch. And thanks to Laura Margadonna for meeting the truck to direct the delivery on Tuesday.  Gardeners were out to work in the beds and get some plants in the ground.  Hopefully we won’t have another freeze and our Spring plantings can go in soon.

Save the Dates!

Garden Work Day Jan 2014

This Saturday, February 22nd we will will have our end of month all gardener work day.  A truck load of mulch is being delivered and all hands are needed to wheelbarrow it and spread it to the aisles to control bermuda takeover.  Some high schoolers are expected to help out but would love to see everyone pitching in.  This picture was taken at our last work day and we want to send out a big thanks to the Hebron National Honor Society students who volunteered.

Then the following Saturday, March 1st at 10:00 am we will have a season kickoff/orientation for new gardeners and all gardeners are invited.  There will be informative talks, refreshments, a door prize and fellowship with fellow gardeners.

Hope to see you there!
