Please note the date of this communication and the ample lead time volunteers
have. I mean this list of 2006 events has been sent out BEFORE the 2006
calendars are nailed to the gardener's walls.
Hint, Hint Greenthumb?

Subject: 2006 Schedule for St. John's United Church of Christ Organic
Community Garden and Labyrinth
Here is the 2006 schedule for St. John's United Church of Christ Organic
Community Garden -- do join us for as many events as you can! :-)
Mitchell Program of St. Gabriel's Hall comes to the garden every Wednesday and
Friday (weather permitting) from 3:30 pm to 5:45 pm to learn the fine points
of sustainable agriculture. They love an audience, so do stop by whenever
your schedule permits!
March 21: Perennial Garden Volunteers meet this Tuesday night and every
Tuesday night through the end of October from 5:30 pm until dark to do
whatever needs done in the garden and labyrinth (and talk a lot! ;-D)! Dogs
that would enjoy playing with Pepper are welcome!
April 1: Plot registration -- come to the garden between 9 am and noon, sign
the paperwork, then pick your garden plot for the year! No fees, but you must
use only organic techniques and donate at least 10% (the Biblical tithe) to
someone who's trying to make ends meet or an agency such as PACS.
April 29: Spring Work Day from 10 am to 2 pm. Activities range from
low-impact, but necessary weeding to high-energy wood chip hauling. Free lunch
at noon for all volunteers! Groups welcome, so if you're looking for a
community service project for lots of people, this is your event for Spring!
October 28: "Make A Difference Day" Fall Work Day from 10 am to 2 pm.
Activities range from low-impact, but necessary weeding to high-energy wood
chip hauling. Free lunch at noon for all volunteers! Groups welcome, so if
you're looking for a community service project in the fall, this is your event
E-mail Newsletter: During the gardening season, I send out a biweekly e-mail
update about progress with both the garden and the labyrinth. To receive this
e-mail garden/labyrinth newsletter in 2006, just e-mail me at
firstname.lastname@example.org. Your e-mail is placed under the Bcc: heading so no one can
"harvest" your e-mail address from this mailing.
