Garden Updates June 24th


My name is Megan and I am the new coordinator here at the Seemore Green Garden!

There are some exciting workshops lined up for the summer, and this Tuesday the 29th of June at 6:00pm we will be discussing the dangers of alien invasive species and the threat they pose to native biodiversity.

We have changed our work-party hours temporarily until the 30th of June, and then we will go back to the old schedule.

New hours until June 30th: Hours after June 30th:
Tues: 5pm-8pm (workshop at 6pm) Tues: 4pm-6pm
Thurs: 5pm-8pm Thurs: 2pm-5pm
Sun: 2pm-5pm Sun: 2pm-5pm

Just a quick reminder for anyone who comes out to the garden outside of regular work-party hours to make a quick note in out diary (located beside the rain barrels) so that we can keep track of our activities for future reference.

Also, we have been trying to label everything we have planted in the garden. If anyone has any Popsicle sticks to bring and help label that would be awesome! Also, a reminder to add labels to anything new that you seed to make sure that nobody plants anything over top of your babies!

Hope to see you all at our Tuesday workshop!

Warm Fuzzies,
