Do You Have Plant Starts From Our Winter Workshops?

9 May

If you have a seedling from this winter’s the seed-starting workshop or basil plant giveaway, and you plan to transplant it into the CV community garden, please let us know!

Whatcha Got? We’re Taking Inventory

While we work off a map, the number of seedlings that actually succeed will determine spacing. Edible garden space is filling up fast, and gardeners need to finalize what is going where.  If you have a plant to transplant, send a message to CVEarthlab@gmail.com , please.

What Does Hardening Off Plants Mean?

Seedlings started inside need to be hardened off, or slowly exposed to the elements, before transplant, and the process takes several days. Basil seedlings planted in small bottles will need to be transplanted into the garden beds or into bigger pots so their roots can spread and they can continue to grow.

We’ll be outside watering and planning today, Wednesday, from 5:30pm until 7pm. Come by with your plants, your kids, your questions, or your annual dues.  All residents — with and without small children — are welcome, and very interested ones are encouraged to join the garden committee for the 2018 season. 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
