Opening Day Pre-Season Meeting May 7, 2023
What a great way to start the 2023 gardening season!
Warm weather, light breeze and lots of wonderful people...Today was a day to catch up with old friends and for meeting new friends.
We took sometime to meet our new gardeners and introduce returning gardeners. We talked about community, working together, sharing knowledge and tricks or short-cuts.
We reviewed the Gardeners Guidelines and asked questions for clarification and shared some tips to getting started in our plots before planting. Thanks Barb for the treats we enjoyed during and after the meeting.
Afterwards, some spent some time planning their garden plot.
New Gardeners toured the Gardens and found their plots. Returning Gardeners spent some time getting the Gardens ready for the season...distributing hoses, digging hills for potato planting, mulching the black and the red raspberry patches and native shrubs.
Then it was time to work in our own plots.
The clouds came in and we finished our day with a nice breeze and a few sprinkles
