Reminder: Festival Beach Community Garden Spring Equinox Celebration: Sunday, March 20, 2016 5-7pm


Hello Gardeners!  

Hope everyone is enjoying the gorgeous (almost) spring weather today!   I want to remind you about our scheduled pot luck party 5pm-7pm this Sunday.  Extra points if you bring a pot luck dish that includes something from the garden!

There will be an area set up for seed exchange, so bring any that you are willing to part with and walk away with seeds you can plant, grow and enjoy!

Please remember we are a ‘leave no trace’ space so let’s all try to remember to bring plates and cups from home to keep trash to a minimum.  We will have a washing station for cleaning dishes and also ice water.
I have one volunteer to help set up so far, and any more will be appreciated!  Let’s meet at the garden at 4:00 to set up…Thanks and hope to see you all Sunday!

Event: Winter Solstice Party: Sunday, December 21, 2014, 4-7pm


Come to solstice party this Sunday December 21 from 4-7.  We will make a solstice spiral to welcome in the light, sing Christmas songs, and have a potluck.

If anyone can contribute their talents of singing, performance, fire building, bringing your favorite dish or treat, plants or seeds to share. Or just bringing yourself would be awesome.

Bring your instruments, or food to grill and Byobeverage. You can RSVP on face book or send me an email to let me know if you know anyone who wants to entertain us. Thanks. Mary K Kraemer
