Hey Folks,
whoa!~ the weather is amazing! hope you’re all swimming and having a ball!

Here are this weeks updates!

1. This week! We got a whole lot of plants in the ground from the Urban Farm folks. We will be holding their plants for a couple of weeks until they are set up! Yahoo! If you want to give em a water from the rain barrels, I’m sure they would appricate it on these hot days.

Just a quick reminder that its your space, so garden when you want, and to check and use the garden diary! We really need to work on the gout weed- so if you’ve got time- giver’! I won’t be there Sunday, but Megan will.

2. Next workshop! Eating your Edible Weeds! Tuesday the 25th from 6-8 pm with Jen Scotland. Jen is a wicked garden and weed eater. This is a great workshop, and you’ll never look at weeds the same way again.

Also Upcoming Workshops:
June 1- Worm Composting
June 8- Forest Gardening & Permaculutre
June 15- What Weeds mean in Your Soil!

3. We’re on facebook! did you know? You should join us there if you’re on it. And invite your friends!

4. This week- either Tuesday or Thursday we will be painting the shed with black board paint (depends on the weather) come and help!

5. Planning-  Alison has volunteered to get this going & work on the drawing! yes~yes! on Tuesday before the workshop from 4-6pm we’re gonna work on it! We didn’t do it last week, so lets try again!

6. Taking Over- At our first meeting we talked about pitching to Dal the takeover of the whole space. (We have the drawn out plans already!) Lets meet about this on Thursday at 3:00pm! No one showed- maybe because of the rain?! Lets try again this Thursday

7. Reminder of collective Garden times-
TUESDAYS 4:00 pm-6:00 pm  followed by a workshops! from 6:00-8:00pm
THURSDAYS 2:00-5:00 pm
SUNDAYS 2:00-5:00 pm

At the first meeting, we talked about different folks holding down collective garden times, just to make sure there is always someone in the garden during those “open” hours. You don’t have to know a lot about gardening, but just be friendly and open. I would also be willing to help orient folks who want to hold the “open hours”. So can anyone commit to these?\ I think ideally, we could have at least two volunteers committed, since its more fun with two folks.

Alright, I think that’s it! if you have any questions/comments get in touch,
