Time to Renew

Already we are planting seeds. Before we know it, it will be time for plants…

New This Year: Community Gardening Area

This year, besides individual plots, which have yielded a beautiful multiplicity of food, color and burgeoning friendships, we will also be planting a large circular wheel/mandala garden whose intention is for organizations and groups  to be responsible for a “slice,” planting food plants and some beneficial flowers, and donating the proceeds to food banks.

We are also designing common areas  with plants that will beautify, attract and feed native butterflies, birds, beneficial insects and humans, discourage harmful insects,  provide wind-break and shelter, and yield opportunities for community education and service.

Come renew or sign up for a garden plot (click tab for garden plot contract at the top) or volunteer for the common garden area.

 

Join us on facebook, usually the first place to learn about garden events and workdays.  See the link on the right.
