See you there!
The Downtown Urban Gardener's Society is pleased to announce the up-coming dedication of its South Garden to one of our cherished members and founders, Joan Craig. She has inspired and sustained this community effort since its very beginning spending countless hours making it first a reality then an important community institution. Her efforts, along with the support of her late husband Doug and her family, witness to community building at its finest.
Please join us in celebrating the dedication of our South Garden to Joan Craig on Wednesday - August 3rd, 6 pm. The Community Garden is located at 7th and Ray Streets one block behind the Yukon Inn and Plaza via Ogilvie and 7th. All are most welcome. Work bee to follow as nothing would please Joan more than to see the garden brimming with volunteer activity.
After this weekend of rain, and sun now in the forecast, the dandelions (among other weedy culprits) will be out in full force. A reminder to all gardeners to keep a 2-3' perimeter around your plot reasonably free of weeds. If you have a plot that has grass growing up and around the box, please try to keep the grass trimmed as well. Getting that close with the weed eater is really hard (costly) on the weed eater wire.
