    Hi Fellow Gardeners!

    With exception to the last couple of days it has been feeling more spring-like. I’m sure some of you have some seedlings going already and before long we’ll be getting ready to plant! So, it’s time to start getting the garden organized for the year.

    While official registration will still be a month away, we do want to get the Garden team organized for this year. We wish everyone to help out in the garden during the season and it takes a small team to keep things organized (you can see some of the roles in our welcome pack). Let me know if you have any interest in being part of this year’s team. We will being setting up a pre-season meeting in late April or early May, in which we can see what’s in store for our garden and the team for the year as well as get to know each other a bit more!

    Many of you expressed interest in carrying over your beds into next year. If you didn’t do this in the fall but wish to now, please respond to this email and we’ll make a note as we get ready for registration. We always try to give last year’s gardeners choice to keep their two primary plots for the following year.

    Looking forward to seeing what this next season brings!

    Raymond,

    Hi Gardeners!

    It’s been so good to be getting some of the fruit of our labours in the past month! It seems to be a great year for beans, beets and many other things. Each season is a little different as we try new things out and work with the weather – I hope you all have been having some successes :
    I have a few updates for mid August:
    First, a reminder that this Saturday, August 18th we’ll be hosting Master Composter John Castell for a workshop on how to compost and different methods to do so – come and learn how and ask questions. Anyone is welcome! This will take place at the St. Croix Vineyard building beside the garden and will be from 10:30am-12pm. (I’ve attached the poster for more details)
    Second, the following Saturday, August 25th, at 10am we’ll have a Community Garden work party. We have supplies for building a trellis by the south bench which we will start putting together. There’s also some path and bed maintenance that is needed around the garden. If you haven’t had a chance to join in please come out and help keep our garden healthy and beautiful!
    Thanks all for making the garden such a good space. Don’t forget to keep your paths clear and weeded, and please let us know right away if you encounter any issues.
    Happy gardening,
    Raymond
