May Meetup For Garden Talk and Fun in the Sun (or Fog)

  • May 19, 2013 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Once we have a decent-sized group, let's meet in person and talk about our interests and goals for our own gardens and the neighborhood(s) around us. We can meet at Madge and Craig's house for first one, and then maybe hosting can be rotated between other homes and/or garden-y locations.


Here's a stab at a more specific "agenda" for our first meeting. We're not too adamantly organized but thought it'd be good to have some sort of loose structure.


Who you are; Garden triumphs/struggles/plans; Garden challenges

- Tour of Madge & Craig's garden + tips for gardening in fog [what we've done, still need to do, what went right and what went wrong]

- Seed swap/ plant swap

To bring [optional]

- Envelopes for seeds you've swapped

- Seeds and/seedlings to swap

- Favorite garden magazines or catalogs

- Garden book or website recommendations

- Snacks to share

- $1 (one dollar) to help reimburse for the monthly Meetup fee

We'll provide refreshments and some snacks too :)

PS: We have two cats (in case anyone has allergies) but one will stay indoors/upstairs and we'll mostly be hanging out in our yard/downstairs.

    Thanks for hosting. It was good meeting you all on such a gorgeous day! For anyone interested about more information from the voodoo tomato lady in Santa Cruz, check out to fish heads...

    My apologies for not being able to attend, I got held up w/business in the East Bay. Next time for sure though! Hope it was fun and I look forward to meeting everyone.

    So sorry to bail at this late hour, but our daughter came back from her school trip to Yosemite a bit under the weather. Hope to make it next time!

    Just a note to remind that bay to breakers race is this morning, but should be long over before our meetup today. But here's a list of road closures and timing just FYI: Mostly just avoid the roads near the very end of GG Park. The N Judah should be running normally. Parking will hopefully open up around our block; one of you can park in our driveway if you're stuck (just let us know it's you :) ) If any questions can email me [masked] or call[masked]-7545. Hasta luego!

    I would prefer Saturday the 18th to meet. Thanks.

      Sorry Dina :( We had a few other conflicts, including one of our own for that Saturday (and the weekend before is Mother's Day). If you can't make Sunday don't worry, we're gonna do one every month, and they'll generally be on Saturdays I'd imagine. Cheers!

    I get off work at 2 PM, but could be there by 2:30.

    Are people okay if we change date to Sunday May 19th (also at 2)? There were enough people who preferred it and/or don't care either way that this would work better. Let me know if enough strongly object. Otherwise we'll change date to Sunday May 19, 2pm. Thanks! :)

    Can we bring anything?

    April 29, 2013

    • Craig P

      Most likely but we're still figuring it out :) But I would say a snack to share (whether from Trader Joe's or homemade or anything) and seeds you'd like to swap if interested in that. We'll email more details to the group soon, too! /craig and madge

    I have a ton of seeds and would love to swap. Also, I have a fair amount of great compost/vegetable dirt mixture in my backyard if anyone needs some ( I bought half a yard last week).
