AND, what’s happening at the Traverse City Community Gardens? There are still 3 garden plots available–it’s not too late to get some seeds and plants in the ground! Stop by the gardens or give us a call: 231-510-3491.

We are working with a great group of folks and wonderful families TRANSFORMING this growing space into beautiful, blooming glowing space….working together, waiting for the frost to pass (It’s only the end of May….aarrrggghhh) AND looking forward to sharing some fun times with the Little A Art-Farm families with potlucks and puppet shows this summer….

Here’s a series of photos taken of Community Gardner Alex doing some necessary work on our cistern which we use to collect water from the rooftop of our Art-Farm Workshop space, Bldg. #221….

You can see from the looks of the gooky algae from the previous year what a job this was. Thanks Alex–and Charlene and Elsie too! The cistern is clean and we’re back to catching water off the roof!
