CVEarthlab is self-funded and we are collecting financial donations for the summer now.  Suggested membership dues are $10 per person or $25 per family, but all contributions are very welcome. Learn more about where the money goes here.  Thank you!  –Denise, Judith, Sandi & Shari

Are You Rejoining The Garden Committee? June 1 Is Deadline for Dues.

If you plan to harvest this year, please consider submitting membership dues before Friday June 1st. Financial commitments help us plan for summer. We always get a lot of requests this time of year and budget is a big factor in accommodating them.

Donating Is A Way To Register Your Garden Support with the Board

Give what you can! While the suggested annual donation ($25 per family or $10 per individual)  helps cover the cost of soil and other materials, any financial contribution sends a strong message to the board that there is support for this project.  Every resident (and dollar) counts!

Checks made out to CVOI can be left with the office or with members such as Shari in 195.  If you send a note to CVEarthlab@gmail.com  one of us can pick up an envelope from your doorman.

Located inside the Children’s Play Area behind 195 Adams Street, CVEarthlab is a volunteer-led, self-funded communal and child-friendly garden. We offer opportunities for adults and children to learn about their environment and the plants and animals that inhabit it with them; to grow and enjoy fresh produce; and to share meals, knowledge and experiences with neighbors with a wide variety of backgrounds in gardening.

Thank you.  -Judith, Shari, Sandy, and Denise, Core Members

He’s a fledgling Robin and he is now in the persimmon tree.

Hurt Baby Bird On Slide Hill

28 May

Last night I spotted a small Robin hopping around the play area fence. I figured it had a broken wing because it was obvious it couldn’t fly and was trying to squeeze itself through holes in the fence to get back into the play area.

Monday afternoon, I saw the same bird by the slide.  Worried about the injured Robin, I put place a saucer of water and live worms near him.  Then, I saw a larger Robin come over and feed the worms to the smaller guy.

His mama is taking care of him, I’m guessing he fell out of a bird’s nest in one of the grates in the MTA substation building.  He should be on the mend, and on his way to flying sooner, but check him out in the meantime. Look for him around the top of the slide, you can likely see him from outside the fence.  -Denise
