Please mark your calendars for the March 10th Community Garden Meeting, 6pm at the Powerhouse (750 W.Wyeth).  Bring a favorite dish to share and your ideas for this season’s garden!  Last month’s meeting was great (thanks to everyone who participated!) and now we need to discuss the upcoming 2009 season (including budget, garden design/layout, and some other leftover agenda items from last month).  

Hope to see you all there!

2009 Garden Planning Meeting!

Spring is approaching, slowly but surely and it is time to gather to discuss the Powerhouse Community Garden for the 2009 season.
There are more and more folks wanting to get involved (woo-hoo!) and lots of possibilities for the garden space as it evolves, expands, and changes.
We will be having a very important meeting next week to discuss organizational structure of the garden, site design (plot system vs. communal system or maybe something entirely different!), the challenges and opportunities facing the garden, irrigation, and hopefully make a plan for the 2009 growing season.
Suffice to say, your input and enthusiasm is needed!

The meeting will be held Tuesday, February 10th at 6pm at the Powerhouse. Please come in on the south-ish side of the building (on Wyeth). Since it is a participatory meeting, it will also be a potluck, too! So bring your favorite dish to share~

Thanks and see you there. Please feel free to call Jessica at 221-8390 if you have any questions~

You’ll see big changes when you come to Saturday’s work party: we got a bunch of dirt on Thursday, generously donated and levelled out for us!

The party starts at 9:15 a.m. on Saturday the 17th.  Come and help us make a difference in the community! The Garden Community is growing and soon there will be things growing in it as well. Hope to see you there!

Starting at 8:30 a.m., we will be having another work party on Tuesday, May 13th. We hope you can join us! We’re increasing our efforts as the time for planting is almost upon us and we need to be ready to get some food in the ground, growing.

The drip irrigation system is currently being worked on and we plan to be able to install it next week, so if you can’t make it on Tuesday, there will be another opportunity to help out coming up soon – keep watching this space for further details!


Come help make things happen!

We will be having a work party Saturday morning, May 10th, starting at 9:00 am. Bring work gloves if you have them – we will supply shovels and instructions.

Last week’s work party was great fun as we cleared away hundreds of pounds of stone and conducted a preliminary ground levelling. Over a dozen people worked on the garden, accomplished much, and had a fantastic time.  Come help make this Saturday equally memorable!
