Hello Gardeners – the Board of Directors met last night to discuss several issues the garden is currently facing. A full report can be found here.
It’s mid-April. As we (hopefully) head for warmer weather, it’s time to begin planting those tomato seeds if you haven’t already. I came across some useful tomato planting and growing tips to share here from the Spruce. The site is also linked on this website’s ‘Resources’ page.
Please join us for the Hill East Community Garden annual meeting today at 4:00pm at Trusty’s; 1420 Pennsylvania Ave. SE.
We will discuss the Garden’s new task-based work system. Snacks and drinks will be provided.
If you have not already renewed your plot for next season, please check your inboxes for the renewal information and links. If you do not wish to renew your plot for the 2018 season, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you still need to complete work hours for 2017, gardeners should concentrate on the following:
- Weed exterior perimeter
- Dismantle water barrel stands and move debris to the patio
- Move debris from NE corner to patio debris pile (be careful of nails)
- Clear plots with red flags. These gardeners are not returning
First, the fun stuff: The Garden Board is organizing a social, we’ll provide the essential utensils and some drinks (beer, wine and non-alcoholic options). Please join us Sunday, June 11 at 5PM. Please bring a dish to share and anything you’d like to grill.
Second: We’ve all got work hour obligations and while you can do them at any time and report them through the Work Hours form on this web site, we’re also pin-pointing work days where you’ll have some solidarity with fellow gardeners.
Here’s what we’ve got so far (last summer, Saturdays seemed to work better than the weekday evenings):
Come for any amount of time you can between 8AM – 11AM on the following dates:
Saturday, May 20, 8AM – 11AMSaturday, June 24, 8AM – 11AM
Saturday, July 15, 8AM – 11AM
Saturday, August 12, 8AM – 11AM
As a reminder, each plot must contribute at least 4 hours of work annually towards the common good of the garden.
The Google Calendar (also available through this site) will be updated accordingly before this weekend is out.
