We're hosting a free Micro Irrigation Workshop for home and garden, Saturday, May 28!
Limited to the first 30 RSVP's only, but openings still available.
Micro irrigation, also called drip irrigation or drip line irrigation, delivers water right at the base of the plant through a system of flexible irrigation tubing, drip emitters, and micro sprays. Sheila Monahan, Water-Wise Program Coordinator– Florida-Friendly Landscaping from the UF/IFAS Hillsborough County Extension Service, is coming to our garden to teach us about this efficient and effective way to keep your garden healthy and happy.
Her presentation takes place at the Garden (6011 N. Highland Ave) on Saturday, May 28, from 10 to 11:00 am. We can only accommodate 30 guests for this special event, so RSVP as soon as possible -- email@example.com
We look forward to seeing you there. And our special thanks to Sheila!
Spreading the word about TBX...
Earlier this week, The Old Seminole Heights Neighborhood Association sent out a notice regarding an important meeting coming up soon... this Wednesday, May 18. We're passing it along for your information and concerned garden members are encouraged to attend. Here is the text from OSHNA's email --
IMPORTANT: TBX Meeting for Seminole Heights:
Wednesday, May 18, 6:30 pm
Seminole Heights Library, 4711 N Central Ave.
The Florida Department of Transportation will be presenting the plans for I-275 in the area north of MLK up to Bearss Ave. It's important you attend to review their plans and tell FDOT to STOP TBX.
Please invite your friends and neighbors. We are getting very close to the June 22nd vote and we must have a good showing at this meeting and the June 22 MPO meeting. We need YOU and all of your friends. Let's pack the library inside and out!
Please check Tampabayexpress.com for current information and meeting updates or call Chris Speese, Public Involvement Coordinator at (813) 975-6405.
Interesting reading, in case you've ever wondered...
This article showed up on the internet recently, "Here's why salad greens are always labeled 'triple-washed' at the grocery store", and the answer seems to reinforce the benefit of growing your own in a garden. Enjoy!
So, lend 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
