Work Party

July 22, 2017
Hi garden community,
As usual, we'll have a work party and breakfast potluck on the last Saturday of the month.  We'll start around 8 this time, due to the heat; but of course, early birds can start sooner.  There's always plenty of food, so don't feel like you have to bring anything but yourself!
This morning Linda ran a weed eater around the interior and exterior perimeters, and Laurie and I used two organic herbicides around the interior perimeter and main paths. Next Saturday we'll work on deadheading and weeding the pollinator garden and the usual common area maintenance.  
Remember the agreement you signed when you joined the community garden?  It says that maintaining your bed(s) and an 18" border of surrounding space are part of remaining in good standing in the community garden; folks who don't abide by the agreement will not be able to get a box next year.  If you're having health or other issues, contact the committee about getting help.
Please put a public meeting on Monday, September 18 on your calendar.  We'll meet at 6:30 p.m. at the Winterville Community Center and we'll provide the food!  We want to get everyone's feedback on changes to the committee bylaws and the future of the garden (priorities and planning).

There was a lovely light cool breeze this morning, so don't let thoughts of heat keep you in next Saturday; come on out and have fun!
