BENEFITS of COMMUNITY GARDENING

Even after several years, I continue to be amazed at the amount of work accomplished in our gardens by a few people within an hour or two. It’s quite miraculous!

WHERE:

Within 24 hours of the work date, I may update the calendar regarding which garden we are working in. We have nine gardens in the Salt Lake valley located in Holladay, South Jordan, and West Jordan. Please check the CALENDAR (http://www.liveandthrive.com/Gardening/Calendar) or Text me before coming to make sure you are going to the right place. In January, we start working in one garden at a time until all nine gardens are open and running by mid-April.

WORK TO BE DONE:

Type of garden work will vary from week to week depending on what’s happening with the weather, the season and the needs of a particular garden. This info will be updated within 24 hours of the Work Date as well. Check the CALENDAR (http://www.liveandthrive.com/Gardening/Calendar) before coming OR send me a Text so you can start receiving TEXT messages from me on the very latest work to be done.

TOURS:

During a group work time, new people are invited to take a look at what we do, without actually working. Come and check us out to see if we are a good fit for you! If you would like to work with us, you are invited to do so.

HARVEST & FOOD:

Generally speaking, every week there is some type of food available for those who work. It may be a meal I’ve prepared, harvest from the garden or food that we receive from local businesses. You never know what it may be but one way we show our appreciation to those who work with us is by feeding them.

MEETING IN PERSON

Besides receiving more information about our group, we want to learn more about you and why you are interested in our group. Tell us a little about your skills, experience, knowledge, talents, etc.

GARDEN CALENDAR

Know the latest on what’s happening. Get acquainted with our TWO garden calendars and learn about updated info on where we are working and what we are doing. Check one of these calendars 24 hours prior to a work date to make sure you have updated info. Additional work days are added to the calendar as well, as the season progresses. 1) LIVE AND THRIVE CALENDAR (http://www.liveandthrive.com/Gardening/Calendar) 2) MEETUP CALENDAR (http://www.meetup.com/HealthyEatingGardenGroup/%23)

I send the very latest info via text message. To be in the loop, text me, include your name and a message stating you want to receive Garden Text messages. My cell:[masked].
