South Garden Dedication

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.

Odds & Ends

Plant a Row

We've begun our weekly drop offs to the Whitehorse Food Bank. If any of you are feeling that maybe you've planted too much of something or that you won't be able to use all of it, let us know and we can donate it to the food bank. All you have to do is mark the row with a PAR stake and we'll do the rest. The produce is harvested, washed, weighed and bagged and then dropped off the next morning. The PAR stakes can be found inside the shed.
Thank you to those who have already donated. We've dropped off almost 25lbs so far!

Task Assignments

Many of you have not been completing your tasks as assigned. If you are not aware of your task, your name is listed in the shed with the task that has been assigned to you. If you do not understand what your task entails, please contact me and I will explain it further. Please remember to record your hours on the sheet, also in the shed.
Keep up the good work to all of you that have been busy with your tasks! It makes such a difference in the garden.

Catch and Release

Please let me know if the ground squirrels are getting into your garden. I've trapped and released 5 so far but with the clay cliffs so close there is no shortage in the population.

Missing in Action

It seems our black wheel barrow has gone missing as well as the hammer and hand saw. If anyone happens to know of their whereabouts, please let me know as they are missed.
