COMMUNITY GARDEN UPDATE - Feb 2012
Did you know the community garden will be more than a garden? A large central piece will consist of benches, pathways and picnic tables surrounded by gorgeous potted flowering plants, trees and shrubs to serve as a gathering place. The plan is for people to enjoy the space by going for walks, having picnics and meetings, or simply lingering in the beauty of the surroundings. Our mood can shift and we feel better about everything in the right environment.
We all respond to beauty and even more so when we've created it ourselves by literally sowing the seeds of this lovely endeavor. Plan to attend the next community garden meeting on Tuesday Feb. 7 at 7:00pm in the Community Hall. Also email
about your interest in volunteering to be a part of this creation which is scheduled for construction this coming spring. We need you!! Please consider emailing your interest in the following:
1) Becoming part of a small group whose focus will be to write grant proposals from a list of already identified sources - this would entail some hours, could be done from home and is needed immediately
2) Becoming one of two volunteers to assist at Winterfest with a community garden activity center and information booth - this would entail 2-3 hours on that evening (Feb. 25)
3) Becoming part of a group to explore and organize other fundraising possibilities between now and spring - this could be done from home and would take any number of hours as per your wish
Thanks for your support. Connie Zerger (Community Garden Coordinator)
