As frost creeps over the veggies, the weeds and the soil, the gardening season is coming to a close in Mid-Missouri again. Before you shift away from thinking about gardening for the winter, please do the following.
- If you’re at a community or group garden, let your garden leader know whether you’re planning to return next year. This will help leaders know what plots will be available for newcomers.
- Clean up your plot. If you need tips on how to put your garden to bed for the winter, consult your garden leader.
- Consider making a year-end donation to the CGC to help with maintaining your community garden next year. We’re a very small, all-volunteer non-profit, and even modest contributions help us fund water, mulch, tools and more to support community gardening in Columbia.
Donate here today, or wait for December when the CGC will be participating in the CoMo Gives local giving campaign.
