Special Cross Canada Speakers' Tour

Marysville Community Garden Meeting

Thank you to everyone who responded to the doodle poll. We will be holding our meeting on Thursday, May 1st at 6:30-8pm at the Pharmasave, 231 Canada st. in the community room. We have to be out by 8pm as they close so I moved the meeting to 6:30pm instead of 7pm so we aren't rushed. Please feel free to drop in later if you can't make it for 6:30pm.

Please take a look at the volunteer page on our blog. If you are interested in any of these roles or have something you think we are missing please attend our meeting this Thursday. 

Marysville Community Garden Meeting 
May 1st, 6:30-8pm 
Pharmasave Community Room, 231 Canada st

Feel free to come out even if you are not a member. Come learn about how you can get involved in the garden. 

Join us at St. Mary's Community Garden this Saturday, May 3rd!

Gardeners: this is a reminder about our first Maintenance Day next Saturday, May 3rd from 1-4pm. St. Mary's Community Garden, 780 McEvoy st. All are welcome to attend! 

Do come to it. There are spring preparations to be made before planting time.
It might very well be too wet to work in the garden, though. Even if we can't,  we are going to have other planned activities indoors, as follows: 

The Seed Library. Come check us out. We have vegetables you can plant with the intention of returning some of their seeds to us, and this is the Seed Library proper. Please note, though, that we also have seeds that can be just planted, harvested and eaten. These are the seeds that would be hard to save, e.g. carrot, which is a biennial.  

A chance to plant seeds in peat pots and bring them home for later placing in your garden.  We're hoping that lots of children get involved with this.  If you have a sunny window and are itching to plant something, this is for you. It certainly is way too early now to direct-seed anything outdoors.

Sign painting. If you haven't yet painted a sign to personalize your plot, this is your chance. Marysville gardeners are also welcome to come and paint a sign for their plot. 

We hope to see lots and lots of people on May 3rd, rain or shine.
