They’re ready to move into your home!

If you enjoyed the garden herbs, vegetables or flowers this year, consider donating to the 2021 fund. We were not able to hold any fundraisers this year, so we’re selling seedlings and appealing for donations.

Want to purchase a houseplant or make a donation?

After you send an email message to CVEarthlab@gmail.com, please send money electronically to Shari Rueckl via Venmo (@misssha ) .

Alternatively, you may leave an envelope with your doorman and send a message, with your name and address, to CVEarthlab@gmail.com, and one of us will pick it up. Or, submit a check, made out to Concord Village Owners Inc, to the office, noting that the money is for CVEarthlab Garden.

You’re Invited! Fundraiser Saturday, 10.3.15 at 4pm

26 Sep

It’s been too long since we celebrated the garden and the gardeners!

Join your neighbors for a potluck party and fundraiser on Saturday October 3rd. We will celebrate the harvest and the end of a successful season with garden-inspired dishes and start to fuel the next season. Guests are invited to bring a savory dish to share and a suggested donation of $10. per person. CVEarthlab members: Please bring annual dues along with a dish.

A community garden needs everyone’s commitment to keep it going strong! Most of the garden costs relate to replenishing and maintaining safe soil. Learn more about where the money goes, as well as other donations and help needed on a regular basis, here. Get recipes and see photos from previous parties here.

To RSVP, send a note to cvearthlab@gmail.com. Thank you.

Thanks to all the Concord Village residents who participated in Sunday’s Harvest Potluck Garden Fundraiser. It was a huge success!

Over 60 people came out and feasted on dozens of delicious dishes inspired by (and including some) seasonal garden ingredients.  Lucky potluck winners include:

-Butterfly plants, arugula and lettuces, cucumbers, herbs and garlic got the most votes for best parts of the garden 2013.  (See poll results here)

-Sal Brienza, who won the 50/50 raffle!

-The entire CVEarthlab garden community, which raised an impressive $345. dollars from the fundraising event. (Funds include Sal Brienza’s winnings, which he promptly donated. 🙂 )

Stay tuned for recipes and photos of tasty dishes. Big thanks again to everyone who made this event possible.
