Dear Gardening Friends,

 

Saturday is going to be a beautiful day to be outside  enjoying the sunshine and fresh air.  Please join us this Saturday March 30th at the Food for All Garden for the opening of the 2019 season.  We will be in the garden from 9 a.m.-12 noon. I hope you can stop down and give us a helping hand for an hour or two. There is plenty of work (or think of it as exercise) to be done before we start to plant.   The focus will be on prepping beds for our early crops of peas,cabbages and beets.Trellis fencing and ground cover needs to be sanitized before we put them in the beds along with raking the compost back on the beds that migrated onto the pathways along with adding organic fertilizer to the beds.  We should begin planting in the next few weeks so there are plenty of chores that needs to get done beforehand and opportunities to help.

 

If you considered volunteering at the garden this year or you know of someone who is interested volunteering please stop by the garden and see what it is all about. Remember no gardening experience is necessary.  We would love to have you join us! If you cannot make it to the garden this Saturday we will be in the garden every Wednesday and Saturday from 9-12 weather permitting. Come when can and no worries if you only stay for a short time. There are also plenty of opportunities to help out in the garden on days besides our scheduled 2 days.  Please check us out on Facebook for updates and happening in the garden.

 

There will be a Pot Luck Supper Friday April 12th from 6 pm-8 pm in the Parish Hall behind the Episcopal Church.  This will be a great opportunity for newcomers to find out about the garden. Please RSVP to foodforallgarden@gmail.com if you are planning to attend.

 

Shop Local The Food for All Garden has teamed up with Steward's Ace Hardware in Clinton for the Round Up Program. Customers can donate to the garden  through March 31st by rounding up their purchases.  All donations will directly benefit the garden help support the garden and in turn Ace Hardware rounds total donated.  Ace Hardware supports many local organizations so pleases support Ace by shopping  local.. 

 

Hope to see you Saturday or sometime in the near future,
