At our February 18 Board Meeting, the Board agreed to hold weekly garden work parties every Saturday from 9-11am (weather permitting). These garden work parties are an excellent opportunity to learn, work, and socialize.
Don, our Master Gardener, will be there each Saturday, unless he has an academic field trip planned. So you can expect to get great guidance in the garden!
The garden parties are posted on our calendar here: http://mcgarden.us/calendar/
Of course, anyone is free to stop by the garden whenever you have free time. If Saturdays don’t work for you, feel free to send a request for a garden buddy to the Wormturners list or the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/MorrisvilleCommunityGarden
See you in the garden!
Our next board meeting is Monday, January 21 at 7 pm at Sol Azteca Mexican Restaurant, 120 Morrisville Square Way, Morrisville, NC.
This board meeting will be our Annual Election and we are looking for people to fill the following spots on the Board. If you are interested in any of the positions please feel free to contact us with any questions before the meeting. Please come, eat, and help elect new members of the Board!
