Many of you have completed your hours and we thank you very much for the time and effort  you have given the garden this year.

These will be all the days scheduled this year unless you make arrangements with someone on the garden board to complete a project independently or contact me through the scarecrow@glenwoodcomunitygarden.com. Thanks again for a great year and I hope everyone has enjoyed the bounty from their gardens.

August In The Garden

Good Morning Gardeners,

The weather has been great and the amount of food growing in everyone’s gardens is amazing. We would like to take this moment to thank everyone who responded to Marilee’s e-mail last week and weeded their gardens so promptly. We are not sure we will ever eradicate our noxious weed problem but we have made a substantial dent.

We still have 30 gardeners who have done some or no work hours. We will place in the shed this morning a list of all gardeners and the work they have completed. Please check the list and let us know if we have missed any work hours you have done and we have not recorded. Please remember each plot require 4 hrs. of work. If you are planning on paying your $100.00 in lieu of work, please do so now. The garden board will be placing all available work days through the end of the season on the website calender. There should be ample opportunities to complete your hours by October 17th. We have several jobs that can be completed independently. They will be posted in the shed this morning. Please contact Marilee afterwards to record your hours.

The garden board will be changing the date for the August Board meeting. We have two board members out of town on the 3rd and as we still struggle to fill board seats we don’t have enough to make a quorum. We will be combining August and September into one meeting on Monday August 31st. As usual the meeting will be held at the Community Center at 6:00. All gardeners interested in taking a seat on the board are invited to attend.

Thanks everyone for your time and commitment to the garden.

Garden Updates

Hello Gardeners!

We’ve reached the middle point of our gardening season–congratulations on all your beautiful gardens thriving so far this summer!

We have a few quick updates that need all of your attention:

1. Saturday, July 18th at 9:00 am at Wulfsohn Garden we have a garden talk about weeds and pests in the garden. This talk will be presented by CSU Master Gardeners Deb and Dieter Martin and is sure to be very informative. Join us!

2. While many of our gardeners have already completed their work hours (thank you!), we still have many who need to fulfill the required number of service hours as per the garden rules. We have two workday dates set aside in July, so check the calendar. Our next workday will be Sunday, July 26th from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm. We will need plenty of help as we are going to redesign the garden entrance. All gardeners are advised that the mandatory 4 hours of volunteer time will be enforced. While we encourage our gardeners to contribute to our community, it is always an option to pay $25 per hour for each volunteer hour not fulfilled.

3. For those of you who cannot make our scheduled workdays, please contact Marilee or Kacey to schedule an alternative time. We are always willing to accommodate our gardener’s individual schedules.

Thank you! And happy gardening!

The Garden is Heating Up!

Hi Gardeners!

The recent rain and now this summer heat is making everything in the garden explode–including the weeds! We have a fresh pile of woodchips at the garden for you to spread on the pathways surrounding your garden to keep those pesky weeds at bay. Please remember that gardeners are responsible for maintenance of the garden pathways surrounding their plot, so be a good garden neighbor and get those woodchips down ASAP!

Also, make sure you are checking the garden website for upcoming garden workdays. We will be updating our calendar to post upcoming workdays at least two weeks in advance for the rest of the gardening season. The next workday is this Saturday, June 20th from 7 am to 9 am. Come get your work hours done before the Strawberry Days Parade!

Happy gardening!

Mark Your Calendar!

Good afternoon, Gardeners!

Here’s a quick reminder that our next work day is Saturday, June 6th from 9am to 11am. Fingers crossed for a beautiful day in the dirt. Join us and get a few hours in of garden volunteer hours.

Happy gardening!

Weed Explosion!

Uh Oh. All the rain has made our valley beautiful and green–weeds included! Those pesky weeds crop up everywhere, so the garden board has flagged those gardens that need some extra attention. Please remember that we all want a beautiful community garden, so the path around your garden plot is included in your weeding responsibilities. Thanks Gardeners!
