Everyone is invited to see the gardens, enjoy the entertainment, refreshments and fun activities! Saturday, October 10 from 9AM-1PM
See the new Food Forest and discover why it’s there. Find out what
“permaculture” really is. Learn about community gardening and get
gardening tips. Want a garden plot for yourself? Now is the time!
Plant some vegetables. Uncover the truth about worms.
Be amazed by hundreds of ladybugs. And sample some delicious treats.
Soaking rains, dripping sweat, and God have kept the garden growing! Trees are getting greener, taller and flowering, ground cover is spreading and filling rocky spaces with red and orange flowers, the banana forest is denser, feeling cooler and looking like a “Jungle Book” backdrop complete with vines and butterflies (is that a parrot off in the distance?).

If you’ve been wondering or haven’t visited recently you must take it in: Fortunately we have lots of ways for you to share in the wonder of permaculture and gardening!
Every Saturday the work continues, mulching, weeding, making trails, planting new corners of green to brighten up…show up anytime between 9:00 and 12:00. We will give you lots to do and lots of water, gatorade and snacks to keep you going!
The Big Event is Saturday October 10th from 9:00 to 1:00. Ladybugs, worms, games, guided nature tours, fruit popsicle sticks– put it on your calendar now!
If you dream of fresh vegetables and a community of people to share gardening tips get ready because October 10th will also be the official kick off for the gardening season. Come ready to sign up for a plot in the community garden section; pick a plot, make your plans to weed, work, and plant–and you’ll be harvesting some of the healthiest food in the county.
We look forward to seeing all of you there–especially if you helped to plant trees over the last two months, come and see how we are growing!
