Join us Monday evening, December 19.

Season's Greetings!  Our December planning meeting will be a Holiday get-together, too. So instead of the public library, we'll meet this month at the home of our garden president, Colleen Parker.  

Mark your calendar for December 19 (meetings are always the third Monday of the month).  Our planning meeting/party starts at 6:30 pm.  You can contact Colleen for more details at 

We've got a bounty of kale to harvest, so come and get some.  Here's the sustainable way to take it from the plant.

Greens like collards, lettuce, and kale are great garden plants. If you harvest the leaves properly, they still continue to grow, providing more and more healthy produce for an entire season.  

Right now, we've got lots of beautiful kale ready for our members to share.  Lettuce and chard, too.  So come out with a bag or basket and take some for you and your family.  But please spend a couple minutes first to watch this YouTube video that shows you the right way to cut the plants back to ensure they keep on producing.  Thanks, and enjoy!

 Who can assist with compost?

Garden member, Anson Mitchell, has put out a call for anyone who can help him with picking up compost donated by a local restaurant or two.  He needs a picker-upper for Wednesdays.  If you're available, contact us at and we'll put you in touch with Anson to talk over the details.  The work is pretty simple and doesn't take a whole lot of time... two details we're sharing in advance to hopefully encourage your interest in signing on.  Thanks!

Lend us a hand, make some friends, and help our garden grow every Saturday morning, 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 next weekend.  

Sunscreen and garden hats are recommended, and bring some water to stay hydrated.  

We look forward to seeing you!

All the best for your Holidays, 
Your friends from Seminole Heights Community Gardens
