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?
