Here are the upcoming events for Garner Grows:
- Tuesday, March 16 at 5pm: Workday
The sweet gum pods that carpet the field need to be raked. Bring a leaf rake – or two if you have extra. I’ve noticed children like to rake : )
- Saturday, March 20, 10pm – 2pm: Workday
Groundbreaking! The field will be tilled starting at 10. We can use 4-5 people to help from 10 – noon, then more from noon – 2 to start mounding the beds and mixing in compost.
- Saturday, April 17, time TBD: Booth at White Deer Park
The Town of Garner is hosting an Earth Day Celebration including Big Sweep and Litter Sweep activities, composting programs, children’s craft activities, educational displays, bluebird walks and more. We will have a booth – a great opportunity for recruiting new members. Come out and “get your green on”!
- Saturday, April 24, 2pm-4pm: Community Information Meeting
We are partnering with Southeast Regional Library for this event, as they pull together a collection of gardening books for one of their display tables. Please come and share your comments, concerns, and suggestions.
