Community Gardening Season Kicks Off


It’s definitely time to think about green veggies and spring gardening! We’re getting more requests for new garden plots every week, and we have our kick-off events coming up soon. Here’s what’s on tap!

Spring Thaw Community Gardening Kick-Off

Saturday, February 25, 2017
Noon-2 p.m.

ARC (Activities & Recreation Center), 1701 W. Ash St.

This is an informal event where new or returning gardeners can drop in to meet garden leaders and fellow gardeners can talk about plans for the new gardening season. Representatives from our member gardens will all be gathered in one place to get organized and sign up new gardeners. Seeds will be distributed free of charge, and we’ll have a few snacks and drinks available.

And to prepare for giving away those seeds. . .

Seed Repacking Party

Monday, February 20, 6-8 p.m. at Centro Latino

Gardeners and volunteers are invited to help us make seed packets to be given away at the Spring Thaw. Because we provide some food, we have to limit the attendance. If you wish to attend, you must RSVP to NO LATER than 5 p.m. Wednesday, February 15.
