Garden planning meeting reminder and other news
View this email in your browser

Join us at the library this evening for our fall planting planning meeting  

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 August 15th meeting starts at 6:30 pm at the Seminole Heights Branch Library (SE corner of Central Avenue and Osborne). Please join us!

And be there at the garden on Saturday August 20, when we host another team of USF Community Partner helpers

USF students will return to our garden the Saturday after next to help us turn soil, turn compost, build berms to prep for planting, tend our garden worms, and maybe pull some weeds.  We're hoping for a team of five to seven volunteers, and we're also hoping for a good turnout from our membership to share a heartfelt welcome and provide some guidance and encouragement.  

The students' visit is part of the university's "CHARGE" city-wide fall annual day of service, and participants will arrive the morning of August 20 at 10:30 for a session lasting until noon. Multiply that by the number of volunteers anticipated to be on hand, and we're talking a lot of valuable people power! 

The photo shown here is from USF's last visit in January... it was a great day in the garden. (Pictured here are two of the students holding some cut papaya from one of our several trees. Garden president, Colleen Parker is on the right, longtime member Lib Mitchell is in the background, and immediate-past president, Denise Moore is on the left).  

Our thanks to the campus' Center for Leadership & Civic Engagement for again including us as an organization to benefit from the their students' generosity of time and effort.  GO BULLS!

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, working 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
