Does Anyone Want Freshly Picked Mint?

13 Jun

We harvested lots of lemon balm and mountain mint. Anyone interested is welcome to pick some up from the community raised beds outside of the play area, behind 195 Adams. There are two piles. Both types of mint are great when dried and brewed as tea!

Plant Swap is 2pm Sat, Part of CV’s Earth Day Fest

29 Apr

My cuttings are ready for trading! Interested? Bring cuttings of healthy, pest-free houseplants to the children’s play area at 2pm on Sat April 30th. (Please do not bring plants seeking a new home.) The free swap is part of Earth Day Fest, sponsored by CV’s Recycling & Sustainability Committee. From 12 noon to 3pm there will be eco-themed games and outdoor family-friendly activities.

Before the swap, at 1230pm, we will transplant flowers, adding finished compost as fertilizer, to illustrate the end product of food-waste collection. The activity ends at 130pm, but you’ll find lots more going on around the CV grounds. See the posters in your lobby for more details. Thank you! -Denise
