Gathering Again 4-14-18

Gardeners appreciate rain, and Rain We Got on the 2nd Garden Gathering April 14, 2108.  Still, people came out with freshly dug perennials, cuttings, and vegetable starts. The rain did not dampen our spirits.  Neighbors made new connections and revived aquaintences.

Greg Parker and Brent Avery of city Parks and Recreation hosted the Pizza Garden station, and the city Landscape management division supplied the soil.  Sabrina also set up stations for the kids to make “seed bombs” and decorate their own tin can to use for a planter.

We all took delight in the joy of lil’ Nicholas’ romp and the Garden Music Station that Emily Bodnar built.  The Worm Hotel from Jerry King was a big hit…and Mrs. Mary Howe, Master Gardener, helped everyone identify unmarked contributions.  Adornments from “Wood and Beam” were available for sale to show our affinity for nature.

Original artwork by @Brandy Baird was appreciated in the raffle as well as:

Cunningham’s Pot Yard gift certificate
