FALL/WINTER 2017

We'll be reducing the garden for the winter and using the down time to build things - like a mini- greenhouse to start seeds, a tomato trellis, create signage for the garden, and other tools needed in the garden. 

If you are interesting in helping out over the winter months, please join the new Urban Garden Winter Task Force. Contact us if you'd like to be added to a project. 

Meetings will be held as needed to build things or gardening to maintain the winter garden. Regular garden workdays will return in February 2018.
