Garden Kick-Off Meeting

It appears that we have crossed all of our permitting hurdles, now we are just waiting for weather dry enough to till and the installation of the water meter before we can start really building. We have over half of our plots reserved; if you want plot, act now.
On Saturday April 21st at 10am we will have a Kick-off meeting with introductions, and a Question and Answer session at the garden site. I will share my tips for planning the start of your new garden. IF the weather has cooperated and the site has been tilled, we will have a mini work day after the kick-off, to measure and mark the paths and water lines. The kick-off will happen rain or shine. If you have any neighbors who would be interested in a plot, invite them to the kick-off! If you drive to the garden Kick-off, please be courteous about parking in front of neighbor homes, don't block driveways in the cul-de-sac.

Here is our "before" picture!
 I'm looking forward to taking some "after" pictures and harvesting veggies with my neighbors!
