Mark Your Calendar: Next meeting June 14th, 2008

Our next garden meeting will be on the usual day and time...that is the second Saturday of the month at 10 a.m.

All gardeners should attend.

If you are interested in joining our garden, we also encourage you to come by.

During the last meeting we discussed the compost pile and all agreed it needs to be kept a bit neater. In an effort to do that, all gardeners should make sure to chop up their debris before adding it (large material takes a long, long time to break down!) and place it in the bins.

At the next meeting we will be working on the compost pile and doing a general clean up of the walk ways.

Can't wait to see you all then!
