Greenvale Park Community garden for 2008 is full, with a waiting list! If you are interested in gardening with us in the future, you are encouraged to fill out an application and send it in (instructions on application, which you can download from this website.) Having applications from interested gardeners will help us know how many potential gardeners are out there, so we can plan for expansion at Greenvale Park and at other Northfield locations in the future. If you are interested in helping us identify other good community gardening sites around town, please contact us at email@example.com. As interest in local food and sustainable living grows, we expect there will be more and more people interested in community gardening! Weâ€™d love to have more energetic folks to help work on expansion of opportunities in Northfield.
Upcoming Events for Greenvale Park Community Gardeners:
Tuesday April 15 or Wednesday April 16, 2008
6:30 â€“ 8 pm at Greenvale Park School Cafeteria
This is our chance to meet fellow gardeners, learn about how the community garden works, sign up for your volunteer work teams, learn where your plot will be, and have a little fun too. We have some great heirloom seeds donated to us by Seed Savers Exchange, and these will be available at the meeting. 2008 community gardeners should attend one meeting or the other . . . whichever is more convenient.
Spring Work Day
Saturday, May 3 (rain alternate, Sunday May 4)
9 am â€“ 3 pm (or till finished) at the garden site at Greenvale Park Elementary
Weâ€™ll need everyoneâ€™s help to edge the garden, put up the new fencing, mark plots, hang gates, mark communal tools, and a few other things. Come whenever you can for as long as you can. Bring work gloves if you have them. Also if you have a flat shovel you can lend for the day, bring that too.
