Seed Swap & Other News

Hello resident gardeners & future gardeners of Fox Point Community Garden!

This is your midwinter blues recovery system to remind you that the spring season is truly just around the corner.

Coming up on March 9th is our annual Seed Swap at the Portuguese-American Social Club, 32 Sheldon St.,  in beautiful Fox Point (about a block up from Coffee Exchange).  We’ll be swappin’ from 6-8:30.
 
Norma will be holding a workshop to make stuff out of gourds – birdhouse, planter, scoop, etc. Everyone who attends will get one (while supplies last).
If you have anything you’d like to showcase or talk about at the Swap, give me a note: I’m going to be making up the flyer for it today & hope to finish & have it approved by the board by the end of the week.  You may also leave a comment here on the site.

At the seed swap, we will be accepting renewal contracts, which will be sent / posted to the site when it’s a little closer to the event.
Please note that the board has made some changes to the agreement.  We are including a “gleaning period” for a week prior to frost date. This ensures that we don’t leave rotting food on the ground when it can be used. There will be an announcement ahead of time, and it will be only for foods that will not survive a frost.

Throughout the growing season, we like to showcase gardeners and their talents: would anyone like to host a workshop during the season?

The Fox Point Community Garden is looking for board members. We meet 4x a year, for about an hour each time, and discuss the needs of the garden-at-large. There is sometimes food involved. We could use a few new board members. If you are interested, please reply with the subject BOARD.

Okay, that’s it for now. Enjoy the snow as best you can, and we’ll all look forward to seeing each other in just four short weeks!
