  • October 22nd 6-8pm. 32 Sheldon St.: Come enjoy the party, and bring your family and friends ! ! !

Common Ground: the Terrace
The terrace is a common area for us all – this year we decided that we’d grow produce to donate. There are also herbs that anyone can take! Thanks to everyone who has helped care for the terrace. It has been freshly weeded and is ready for some fall/winter crops! If you are planting in your plot (carrots, beets, kale, collards etc.) please plant a a little in the terrace too! And label it!

See you at the garden,
Christie
