First Spring Clean Up Day is a Success

We had our first Community Work Day of 2019 and it was a tremendous success. Look below at all of the amazing projects that garden members finished as part of our Spring Clean Up. (We forgot to take “before” photos. 🤦‍♂️)

Thank you to everyone who came! We had one of our largest turnouts for a work day including former members and entire families. Conshohocken Brewing Co donated 2 cases of beer, and we all enjoyed a slice of tomato pie.

We have more Spring Clean Up ahead, so there are more opportunities for you to leave your mark on the garden. Follow us on Facebook for news on all of our garden events.

April Garden Meeting

Our April Garden Meeting will be on the Tuesday the 9th at 7pm. We’ll give project updates, discuss Spring planting, and tell you more about upcoming events.

Date: Tuesday, April 9, 2019
Time: 7pm
Location: TBD

The meeting location is TBD. We hope to have this meeting at the garden, but we are waiting to see if the weather and sunset will cooperate.

February Happy Hour & March Meeting

We’re gearing up for the 2019 season with a February Happy Hour and our first meeting in March.

Come mingle with current and future gardeners. New gardeners, learn tips for growing in PA. Experienced gardeners, share tales of past harvests. Or don’t talk about flora at all and just get to know your fellow gardeners.

Happy Hour

Our first meeting of 2019 will follow in March. We’ll discuss Winter happenings, preparing for Spring, and upcoming events, so mark your calendars.

First Garden Meeting

The meeting will be held in the Fellowship House’s “meeting room” at the back right behind the fitness center. If we have a large turnout, we will move to the multipurpose room in the front. We hope to see you there!
