Everyone's gardens look just fantastic.

Just a reminder, that although our weather has been cool, the soil in the beds will still dry out quite quickly. You'll want to continue to water your bed right up until harvest. This also goes for anyone who may have the task of taking care of any of the perennial trenches. ie raspberries, saskatoons, rhubarb.

I'd also like to thank Ibex Valley Greenhouses for their generous donation of flowers to the garden. We've planted and placed them throughout the beds and hopefully the frost will hold off long enough for us to enjoy them into the fall.

As well, thank you to those gardeners who have contributed so much volunteer time to the garden. It really does show!
The raspberries are ready to pick! Please help yourselves. We offer the berries on the outside of the trench to the public and reserve the ones on the inside for our gardeners. You'll also find strawberries in bed#9 and two large saskatoon trenches both inside and outside the fence. The saskatoons aren't 100% ready but it is great to see that we will have a nice crop this year.

DUGS Board Meeting
The DUGS monthly board meeting will be held at the garden on Thursday, August 14th, from 6:00-7:30 pm. Anyone and everyone are welcome to attend.

A Celebration of the Harvest

The end of August brings this annual event held at the the community garden. All are welcome. It is a potluck affair and any gardeners interested in donating something from their garden plot are encouraged to so. If anyone would like to donate something that isn't from their garden, they are also encouraged to do so!

It's a fun afternoon of live music and entertainment. Come down and recieve your blessing from the Goddess of the won't be disappointed!
