Please assist this USF honors senior by completing a short survey for her thesis project.
She is Melissa Falzon, a Biomedical Sciences major at USF, and is interested in how our involvement in a community garden might affect our attitudes regarding food and about our well-being in general. Melissa’s research on the subject will be incorporated in a thesis project, and she’s asking for our help. Here’s the message she sent to our garden president, Colleen Parker --
Hello, I am a USF honors college senior that will be working on a thesis project this semester. I am interested in community gardens and believe they can have a positive impact in many people’s lives. This study will analyze how involvement in a community garden affects how an individual views food and their health overall. Please consider helping me gather data by filling out this brief anonymous survey. The survey should take about 5-10 minutes at most and responses are greatly appreciated!

And here's the link to her survey --
Melissa is hoping for a lot of participation from us obviously, and she also needs your response by Saturday, October 8 if possible.
Please take part. This is another simple, but significant opportunity for our garden to fulfill its commitment to community outreach. And frankly, we’re pleased that Melissa chose our endeavors as a topic of study. We give her our best wishes for success with the project.
Attention Garden members... our next planning meeting is coming up, Monday, October 17
We schedule the evening of the third Monday of each month to discuss all pertinent topics related to keeping our garden bountiful and our organization thriving. Everyone is welcome. Our next meeting starts at 6:30 pm at the Seminole Heights Branch Library (SE corner of Central Avenue and Osborne). Please join us!
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
