Garden News, November 2020

13 Nov

Its that time of year, neighbors…Time to close down and winterize the CV Earthlab Garden.  We’ve pulled up the annual plants, but there are still culinary herbs in the standing bed outside the children’s play area behind 195 Adams. Snip some of the herbs that you’d like (you can dry and save them) as soon as possible, please; those beds will close later this month.

A Note About CVEarthlab Garden Fundraising

In a typical year, we host several fundraisers. Unfortunately, we were unable to hold any this year due to Covid-19 protocols. To try to fill the revenue gap, we’re selling a limited supply of houseplants: Aloe, spider, coleus and other plant starts are available via pre-order. Suggested donation for each plant is $15.00. – $22.00.

Thanks In Advance For Your Support!

Did you enjoy the garden this year?  The herb beds were popular, probably because residents were cooking at home during quarantine.  If you used the kitchen herbs, found joy in the blossoms, enjoyed the floral fragrances or the Monarch butterflies, please consider donating.

We hope the garden was a bright spot during a dreary year – and that it will be successful again in 2021.

If you’d like to preorder a houseplant or contribute money, you can do so several different ways.

  • Leave an envelope with your doorman and send a message, with your plant preference, name and address, to One of us will pick it up from your doorman.
  • Submit a check, made out to Concord Village Owners Inc, to the office, noting that the money is for CV Earthlab Garden
  • Send money electronically to Shari Rueckl via Venmo (@misssha )
