With spring now in full swing, this article from bobvila.com has some helpful tips and common mistakes for growing vegetables.
Perhaps this article on plants that like to grow together will be helpful as we are preparing our plots and yards for the growing season.
Hello Gardeners! We hope you are getting ready for spring gardening! Watch your inboxes for your renewal information coming soon. In the meantime, click here for the minutes from the most recent board meeting and mark your calendars for the Hill East Garden Annual Meeting.
What: Hill East Garden Annual Meeting
When: Saturday, April 18, 2020; 1:00pm
Where: Trusty’s Upstairs (1420 Pennsylvania Ave SE)
The minutes from the 6/11/19 Board meeting have been posted. Happy Gardening!
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.
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 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.
