Garden Club Meeting

I reserved a community garden plot at Bradley International School at 3051 South Elm Street (about a mile away from Living Earth, just off of Dahlia and Yale).

Because it's located at a school, all participants must fill out a form for a background check. Forms will be available at the meeting.

The plot is 8'x10' (that's the only size they offer), so we'll need to organize our planting to maximize the space we have.

Bring your thinking caps, open hearts, and creative ideas to the table. Also if anyone has any tools, seeds, or other supplies, they'd be most appreciated (you don't have to bring them yet).

Water and compost will be available for use starting May 1st, but everyone is responsible for taking care of their own plot, so we'll work out a watering and weeding schedule.

The rent and fees for the plot come to $50 for the year (mainly to offset the cost of water and compost), and we will split that among us. We'll also split the harvest, of course, and donate to Hand 2 Hand.

By the way, does anyone have any Pagan gardening books? Like "Gardening with the Goddess: Creating Gardens of Spirit and Magick" by Patricia Telesco, or "The Wicca Garden: A Modern Witch's Book of Magickal and Enchanted Herbs and Plants" by Gerina Dunwich, or "Garden Witchery: Magick from the Ground Up" by Ellen Dugan, for example - or any other similar kind of book? I want find a couple of good ones. Any favorite recommendations?

    I would be very interested. I just moved back to Colorado. I did a lot of veggie and herb gardening in the past, but not for a few years. I too have no car but it looks like a bus goes there.
    It would be a way for me to give back as I had to accept help this week on arrival back in town after unexpected moving expenses!

    I am a professional horticulturist and am actually new to veggie gardening. I'm learning tons from Mother Earth News! I am also The Flower Lady. I love sharing information and knowledge with other gardeners. What are your thoughts on the group?

      I think there'd be a way to include folks who have their own gardens, but still wish to network with the community. Your knowledge and expertise will be valuable and most appreciated! We'll discuss it at the meeting and see what we come up with. BB :-)

    Can we be a part of the club without doing the garden plot? We already have our own yard (1/4 acre) that we garden extensively so we really don't need to plant anywhere else.

      I think there'd be a way to do something like that. We'll discuss it at the meeting and see what we come up with. BB :-)

    Sorry I just thought about the location and because being so far up north, I feel I wouldn't be able to devote too much time to this. This is a great idea though!

      I live down by I-25 and Lincoln Ave (and have no car), so I know what you mean. When looking for a plot, I thought it best to chose a location that was as close to the Living Earth Center as possible (even though it's still about a 45 min commute for me). The other locations that were available are even farther north, or not very accessible by RTD. Feel free to support us in Spirit. Any tools, seeds, or other supplies you can share would be appreciated too. BB :-)

    When I saw the notice about the Garden Club, I didn't see the part about the garden plot. Since I live in Salida, I won't be taking part in that, but I'm happy to offer any knowledge I can. My yard here is small (20x40), so I'm turning the whole back yard into veggies this year. I will be in Denver about every other week, so I'll be there when I can
