Corners of the Field Community Garden
The Community Garden (CFCG) is requesting volunteers for two important upcoming work dates: April 7, 12 noon and April 14, at 12 noon. UJS students and their families are welcome to join us after Sunday school. We will meet in the garden. Don’t forget sunscreen, hat, gloves, and a shovel! We are planning to fill our new raised beds with topsoil and do a little spring cleaning.
For more information please contact Allyson Strauss at (616) 406-6536, or
4. My next email will be about the hoses and watering system.
3. I am submitting an RFA to the Jewish Federation to ask for $200. This application is new but they are formalizing the funds disbursement process so we have to keep better records/ notes. It is due April 5th.
2. Friday April 11, 11am I am meeting with the director of the Baxter Center (Melanie Beelen) to see how we can better align our organizations. If anyone would like to go with me that would be cool. We can get a tour of their facility.
1. Sunday April7th I will be speaking at the UU Church (10 min) to tell them about CFCG. I did a seed-starting program with the Sunday school kids about a month ago. We put the pots in big plastic storage bins out by the garages. I peeked at them this morning and some of the seeds are germinating! I am going to surprise the kids at my talk with some show and tell of their work. I think they will get a kick out of it.
Hello Gardeners- The snow is still flying and I'm bugging you about gardening!
First things first- Sunday April 7th and Sunday April 14th 12:30pm are our two first gardening dates. We need to fill the cinderblock beds and start some cold weather veggies. If it is raining this Sunday we will postpone to April 14. This means shovels and pushing the wheelbarrows up the hill. Fun!! I will try to round up several youngsters for this---Tanner?!! Ben!!? Vance?!!!
CU soon! -Allyson
