  • If you plan to return to the garden and have not yet registered, do so immediately. 
  • For the first time in the history of our garden we have available plots and no waiting list. If you are feeling ambitious and would like an additional plot, let me know. Both full and half plots are available. 
  • I plan to put out a notice to the general public soon saying that we have plots available and I expect them to go quickly. If you have friends who are thinking of joining us in the garden, have them contact me soon.  

  • Seed Exchange--April 27, 9a.m.-noon, in the Mall. 
    • Our friends at Watkins have arranged another seed exchange, this time in a warmer location. This is in conjunction with the last Farmer's Market of the winter season. You are invited to bring your extra seeds to trade with other gardeners. 
  • Plant Sale--May 4, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the community garden. 
    • Buy baby vegetables for a quick start in your garden; 
    • If you start your own vegetables, grow a few extras to donate to the plant sale;
    • Donate your extra plants to the plant sale. The emphasis will be on vegetables, but all donations will be welcome. 
    • 100% of the proceeds go to sustain the garden. 
  • We will be scheduling a spring work day soon. (We probably should have done this already, but with all this snow, it's easy to forget that spring is actually going to happen.)

Finding a New Site
  • We have made initial contact with some of our city officials and with Redeemer Lutheran Church, but there is nothing substantial to report yet. But do not lose hope. There will be a garden next year. Optimism is hardwired into the genes (jeans?) of all gardeners!
