TC Community Gardens–Potluck and Plots!

Spring Greetings at long last!

For those of you who have gardened in previous years at the TC Community Gardens and wish to get back into the soil on these sunny days, go ahead and re-claim your garden space and get started. Some of us took advantage of last weekends’ warm weather and planted peas!

We are happy to welcome new gardeners into the Community Garden space and would like to encourage you to visit the gardens and check out the layout. The Community Gardens are located nearby the big Barns on the old State Mental Hospital, near the Village of the Grand Traverse Commons and Bldg. #50 area.

For general information sharing, join us for a Community Garden Potluck next weekend (see info below), where we will welcome new gardeners and get organized to have more plots plowed, discuss the water-plans/solutions we’ve been working on this winter, and fine-tune our Community Garden guidelines and organizational collective.

There will be a garden plot-map and we will have contracts for you to fill out. The garden plot rental fee is again $25.00, with an additional work-trade agreement to accomplish new fence installation, general garden upkeep, and organize more potlucks and picnics throughout the gardening season.

We will also share information about an upcoming Skill-share and Training sponsored by Little Artshram, titled From Community Gardening to Wandering in the Woods, on May 17th. This day-long skill-share and training will focus on organic and sustainable gardening practices, herb-gardening, a plant and seed swap, and building nature awareness skills. We welcome both families and individuals, with activities and workshops for all ages! Cost is $5.00 donation per workshop.

AND FINALLY, Because we are still encountering some chilly spring weather, we’ll hold this potluck at the Artcenter of TC–which is just around the corner from the Community Gardens.
