Drink Wine, Talk Plants: Garden Mixer Monday Nite!

15 Feb

Join us Monday night for a mixer – a casual garden committee get together.

What: Get to Know the Garden and the Gardeners (+ sip wine!)

Why: Pre-Season Planning, Volunteer Recruiting

When: Monday, 6:45 pm to 7:45 pm*

Where: CV Community Room, 230 Jay Street

Are you interested in getting involved with CV garden planning and care? Maybe you are more of a worker bee, who can step up once or twice a week to do one of many small daily tasks required, such as watering or checking the irrigation timer or inspecting leaves for signs of disease? Or an independent sort who wants to take care of things like prepping treatment spray bottles when your schedule allows. We need you too!

We’re hosting a causal garden committee meeting on Monday Feb 20th, from 6:45pm to 7:45pm.  We will chat about hopes for the upcoming season and see how many volunteers are willing and able to help.

Wine will be served!

If you think you might want to get your hands dirty this year, or are curious about how it all works, please stop by! 

If you’ve volunteered in the past, come and bring a curious neighbor! The garden is a great way to meet your CV neighbors and get to know the community. All residents are welcome — no green thumbs are required.

As in previous years, we hope to hold a seed-starting workshop, snap pea planting activities, flower transplanting, worm hunting, butterfly conservation and more — but we cannot do these things without community participation and volunteer energy.

The goal of the get together is to see who can help this spring, and what our top priorities are.

Pollinator-supporting flowers?  Culinary herbs?  Vegetables?  Tomatoes?

Unfortunately many of the raised beds, including the popular herb bed outside the fence, were contaminated by rodents. Before we plant anything, we have to empty and remove the contents, clean the beds, treat them with bleach, and replace the organic soil. There will be more pre-season grunt work than usual.

*We hope to hold an additional early evening mixer later this month for others who cannot attend, esp parents of young children who may be occupied with bedtime routines.
