We're taking a break this month... no planning meeting scheduled for November
Everything at the garden seems to be running smoothly and all of our current plans are on track. And with Thanksgiving just around the corner, we decided to cancel our planning meeting that would normally be scheduled for November 21 (always the third Monday of the month).
But watch for news about our December meeting, which might double as a holiday party at a board member's house. Stay tuned!
A couple of garden related events for you, both happening this Saturday.
Gardeners and foodies have to make a choice this weekend whether to check out the VISTA Gardens Fall Festival in Carrollwood, or the 7th Annual Tampa Bay Veg Fest at the Contanchobee Fort Brooke Park in downtown.
Actually you can squeeze in both events if you decide to make a full day of it. They look to be fun and informative, so you might want to do just that... click on the links we included above and make some plans (the weather forecast for the day is perfect). Maybe we'll see you there!
We need bagged leaves for composting
The leaves fall in Autumn, and that's a good thing because we need lots of them to make our compost for organic soil. If you've raked up some bags full in your yard, don't take them to the curb. Drop them off at our community garden instead ... you can just place the bags over the chain link fence in the back through the alley.
But please note that we can't use leaves from yards that have been treated with either pesticides or with fertilizers (no donations from TruGreen customers, for example). Thanks!
Lend us a hand, make some friends, and help our garden grow. Saturday mornings, 9:00 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 this 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
