What on Earth Day is going on?
Earth Day is coming up fast, Saturday April 22. And it's also our garden's birthday, something we plan to celebrate with a special open house for the public. So please mark your calendar to attend our monthly planning meeting on Monday March 20th, where we'll finalize the details for the big day. The meeting starts at 6:30 pm at Seminole Heights Branch Library (SE corner of Central Avenue and Osborne).
Join us to share your input. (And keep collecting your little plastic yogurt cups in the meantime... we need them to pot seedlings to share as garden gifts with our Earth Day/Birthday guests.) Thanks!
Rain has been scarce.
Help us keep the garden watered.
It's been a very dry winter. But our team of watering volunteers under the leadership of our "Water Lily", Lynelle Bonneville, has managed to keep everything green and growing. Each volunteer is assigned to a different day of the week and to a designated watering zone in the garden.
With such dry conditions though, our plants would greatly benefit from some additional attention. That means additional volunteers to fill in. If you can help, reach out to Lynelle through our regular email...
firstname.lastname@example.org. Or just grab a watering can anytime you visit the garden and douse as many plants as you can. They can never get too much.
Plant festival season is here.
FYI, a pretty good article appeared in last Sunday's Tampa Bay Times that listed several plant festivals coming up in March and April. Here's the Times' link to the article online... you might be interested in checking out some of these events.
Lend us a hand, make some friends, and help our garden grow. Every Saturday, 9 am to noon
Planting, weeding, watering, harvesting, and tending the compost and the garden worms... these are a few of the regular tasks essential to our ever-bountiful community garden.
We gather for a few hours every Saturday morning, pitching in together to keep it going and keep things growing. So please join us if you can next weekend.
Sunscreen and garden hats are recommended, and bring some water to stay hydrated.
We look forward to seeing you!
All the best,
Your friends from Seminole Heights Community Gardens
