The first workweekend is scheduled for this weekend, May 1st & 2nd at the garden!
There are LOTS of things to do, and the more, the merrier! If you like, you may bring some snacks, but it’s not required. If anyone has a large bucket we can put ice in, we can get some clean water to keep chilled. That would be nice. Forecasts say it’s gonna be hot on Saturday, so be sure to bring sunblock, especially for the kids.
Saturday is scheduled to be mostly a general garden clean-up: weeding, compost prep, pathways, woodchips, etc. Please bring gloves and gardening tools if you have them. We have some in the shed, but if you have some to share, bring them!
We need to get the compost in order. If you’ve been down lately, you’d have noticed that the compost is in sad, unfair condition. all the big chunks of stalk & brown material needs to be broken down, separated and then the compost needs to be re-layered.
If you have any extra brown garden bags, please bring them and I will reimburse you with bags when I’m able to get down to get some more.
A lot of the plots were not cleaned up last fall, so if yours is one of them, please come and clean up your plot as well as help out in the general garden area.
Saturday workday starts at 8am. I am not sure what time it will end; I’d like to go as long as possible.
Sunday is scheduled to be the fix-it day! bring hammers, cordless drills/saws or any other useful tool that you can think of! Screws, too! Sunday’s clean-up starts at 9 and we’ll go as long as we can.
Children are welcome on Saturday, but because of the presence of saws and the like, on Sunday, I think it’s best that children play in the park rather than help in the garden. Of course, you know your child best. We all just want a safe day.
I will also have contracts available. Please bring checks only and don’t make them out until you get there because the price of your plot may have changed. When you make your check out, make it to FOX POINT COMMUNITY GARDEN, not to me personally.
The latest date to pay for your plot is May 15. Due to the enormous waitlist we have, if you have not paid for your plot by the 15th of May it will be reassigned. If you can’t make it to the workweekend, make an arrangement to meet with me.
