September 2, 2009

Hello Everyone,

Fall is upon us!
Just a reminder to everyone that bed cleanup is for the end of the month, September 30th.
If you plan to return in the spring it is not imperative that you have the bed cleaned in the fall although it is nice to turn the soil and let it breath over the winter.
If you plan not to return and would like your deposit back, you must clean your bed out before the deadline.
If you do not clean out your bed your bed deposit will not be returned.
Make sense? Good. Just give me a shout or email if you have any questions...

Just want to say thanks to the Y2C2 crew that came and spent the day working in the south garden in mid-August. They filled 3 beds and were able to spread gravel on the walkways. Hopefully, it won't be so slick when it rains now. They also helped with a harvest and delivery to the food bank. 30 lbs! Thanks again and we always look forward to having the crew come to help us out. Hope to see you next year!

Thanks also to all the gardeners donating from their beds to the plant-a-row program. Our food totals to date are around the 300lb mark which is just fantastic. Our goal this year is 500lbs which I am sure we will surpass. The majority of it this year has gone to the new food bank but other drop offs have been made to various agencies. If anyone has anything they would like to donate, throw a PAR (purple marker) in your bed where the vegetable is growing and we can harvest it for you or if you would like to do it yourself, we ask if you could mark it on the sheet on the back of the shed door. We like to keep track of what we are able to produce and donate.

We had a lovely, although planned at the last minute, Open House at the end of August. About 15-16 people were able to attend. We hope next year to plan a bit further in advance. Should be fun. Thanks for stopping by if you had the chance.

Wednesday night work bee is tonight. If you can make it, I look forward to seeing you there!
