Garden Work Day Saturday April 26 1-4 pm

Timberland employees help build our compost units.This is a quick reminder that we need help to build new beds this Saturday, April 26, from 1 – 4 (rain date, Apr. 27th 1 – 4). 

The current weather report says “showers” on Sat. and we’ll work unless it’s a downpour!  We hope to build and fill new beds with soil.  If you have a wheelbarrow and shovel you could bring, that would be helpful.  Be sure you have your name on any equipment you bring. 

Other items we could use:

Clean, unbleached cardboard with no tape, staples or glue residue on it. 
Newspapers WITHOUT colorful advertising flyers mixed in.

Each  new bed will have a layer of cardboard in the bottom and a sprinkling of chicken manure before being filled with soil.

A reminder to those of you who still need to pay for your beds that you can bring your payment to me that day OR put a check in the mail to me before May 1st.

Thanks and hope to see you on Saturday,

Kay Morgan, Membership Coordinator

Gardening + Scavenger Hunt = FUN!

Our Garden Work day on Sunday August 19th had an added bonus — the Kids’ Scavenger Hunt! Fun was had by all…and we even got some work done in the garden. Thanks to all who attended the event!

Weed Lovers Take Notice!

As an integral part of this Sunday’s weed identification session at 1:30pm, we will not only be talking about weed management, but we will be actively managing (PULLING) weeds where we find them.

**If you have a “weed” that you are nurturing for some particular purpose (medicinal, edible, scented, poison, etc.), and which you intend to remove before it seeds or sends out new shoots, please let me know (and bed number), and it will be temporarily spared. Otherwise, all weeds will be removed for the common good. The intent is to do a sweep of all gardens if we have the time.

Thanks, and hope to see you there.SIDENOTE: the children’s scavenger hunt will be at 2:30pm, open invitation to Durham.
