1pm Sunday Planting + More Garden Event Notes

17 Mar

Talk about a quick and dirty job! Join the gardeners inside the children’s play area (behind 195 Adams St) at 1pm Sunday for a short but fun event. We’ll spend about 30 minutes digging under cover crops, tilling the soil and direct sowing frost-hardy seeds.  We’ll plant sugar snap peas, snow peas and possibly other veg such as radish, beets.  All are welcome! These activities are toddler-friendly, but please note it will be cold so we won’t be out long.

Coming soon:

In mid-April, we’ll have the opportunity to move basil plants (from February’s pizza party) and herbs from our window sills into the garden. We will also direct sow more plants around the same time.

Sat April 28th or Sun April 29th:  We’re planning a kid-friendly garden workday. Depending which day has a better forecast, we’ll  do some planting and transplanting, assemble a new raised bed, move soil and more!

In mid-May, (or a little later) we’ll the transplant tomatoes, peppers and flowers that we started from seed into the garden beds.


Excited?  You can sign up on the watering sked to commit to water the plants in May  — or even pay membership dues for the 2018 Spring, Summer + Fall season.

Spring is almost here — help welcome it!
