Community Garden

Volunteers needed to help plant Clarkston Community Garden


The Clarkston Community Garden is ready for planting. 
Families and groups are needed Saturday, May 13, to plant all the crops
for the 2006 season. Planting will start at 9 a.m. 
ADVERTISEMENT 
 
The garden is an approved Michigan State University Extension "Plant A
Row" site. Fresh produce harvested at the end of the season is donated
to needy families. 
In preparation for planting day, the Yesteryear's Farm Tractor Club
broke ground in mid-April. Club members plowed and tilled the field, the
first step to any garden opening. This past weekend, garden managers
along with students from Clarkston High School's National Honor Society
readied the beds and did a general clean-up on the site. 
There are other volunteer opportunities at the Community Garden for
individuals and groups throughout the summer. 
Besides middle school and high school youth groups, Scout groups,
neighborhood groups and families, the garden is in need of five garden
managers and master gardeners. 
To volunteer, call the Independence Township Recreation Department at
(248) 625-8223.

Subject: Community Garden: May Schedule of Events!


Hi, Folks!

The Spring Work Day on April 29 was a great success b and not just
because
TD Alfredobs donated 10 large pizzas!  The northcentral perennial bed
is now
ready to receive volunteer sunflowers, cosmos and cleome from garden
plots,
the front of the garden has been edged in wood chips and buckets and
buckets
of weeds are now compost!  However, the Russian Thistle is attempting
to make
a comeback, so webll still need folks on Tuesday nights for weeding
and
conversation!

This weekend has two opportunities to plant and learn more about
plants.  On
Saturday at 1 pm, Brownie Troop 1712 will be planting sunflowers,
nasturtiums
from Seed Savers Exchange and other flowers around the labyrinth and
garden
edges.  Helpers are welcome b this an ball planting, no weeding!b day,
so it should be fun for plant enthusiasts.  On Sunday at 2 pm, Les
Beachy, the
East Coastbs expert on kiwis, will be coming to the garden to examine
and
prune our hardy kiwi pergola. Les donated the original plants and is
helping
us tidy up the pergola so that it will be ready to install the brand
new
benched donated to the garden by the Phoenixville Area Middle School
Philanthropy Club.  Although Les is Seed Savers Exchange expert on
Kiwis,
hebs also a member of the North American Fruit Explorers and has a
broad
background in fruit growing b if you have any questions about any
fruit, Les
will be happy to answer them while hebs at the community garden on
Sunday
afternoon.

On Friday, May 12th, at 5 pm, our pastor, the Rev. Linda Gruber and
Brother
Peter Costello of St. Gabrielbs Hall will jointly perform the annual
bBlessing of the Garden.b All are welcome for annual service at the
garden.

Although itbs not a garden event, if youbre looking for tools,
clothes,
furniture or anything else, the bMondo Yard Saleb to benefit Reservoir
Dogs! Park will be held at 315 Gay Street (St. Johnbs United Church of
Christ) on Saturday May 20th, starting at 7 am.  With the 261 members
of
Friends of Reservoir Dogs! Park cleaning out their closets to raise
money for
the dog park, ANYTHING youbre looking for should be offered for sale
that
day.

Speaking of yard sales, the community garden needs more watering cans b
if
you find some at a yard sale before the bMondo Yard Saleb, please
consider
donating them to the community garden. Teenage boys may love to water,
but
they are hard on plastic watering cans b which are *not* cheap and
never
seem to go on sale! L

Also, if you are dividing a perennial and canbt find a home for the
divisions, consider donating them to the community garden and/or the
Mitchell
Program of St. Gabrielbs Hall.  Just leave the plants (with labels,
please!)
in pots in the shade of one of the sheds and webll find the perfect
spot for
your extra plants at either of these locations.

Our gardeners have been busy in the community as well as at the garden:
 Ed
ObNeill, who assists me with St. Gabrielbs Hall, has applied for
Phoenixvillebs new Youth Aid Panel that will work with first-time
juvenile
offenders.  Jessica, from Chester County Juvenile Probation Community
Service,
is back at the garden for the summer. Felix Shi, a junior at
Phoenixville High
School who volunteers at the garden to fulfill college aspirations, and
his
date were interviewed at the Phoenixville High School Prom b look for
them
on Channel 4!  Brandon Hark, who joined the garden to grow vegetables
for PACS
as his bar mitzvah community service project, harvested his very first
crop
ever b a beautiful selection of green head lettuce b and took it to
PACS
this week.
