The summer heat and humidity are taking their toll but they haven’t affected the ongoing positive happenings in our garden! Here are some of them:
#1 is the dedication of donations Bed 15, as a tribute to our beloved Fran Johnson by Carol Peterson. Fran was an original member of the garden when it was formed in 2012. Church members still talk about the beautiful tomatoes that he used to share with them.
#2 the annual potluck is on the calendar for Saturday, August 21, 2021 from 11:30 – 1:30! How exciting that our tradition is returning this year!
If you have a suggestion for a speaker or a topic, or both, please let Nathan or Jill know ASAP. In the meantime, we’ve contacted Urban Harvest for a possible speaker.
#3 thanks to Liam for the use of Bed#6 for donations this year!
#4 during the month of June, the following donations were made to the Clear Lake Baptist Food Pantry:
23 lbs. tomatoes; 2.8 lbs. peppers; 8 oz. carrots; 3.8 lbs. eggplant; and 2 lb.10oz. cucumbers.
Donation days: Wed. 2:30 – 4:30, the earlier the better. Jane and David Malin live close by and are willing to deliver your donations: 281-488-2452
Please report your donations to Jill: email@example.com or leave a text at 832-755-6758. Thank you!
A big welcome to Clif Grim, our new “blog master!” And, a huge and sincere thank you to Emily Savino who served in that position for over five years. We’re meeting our goal of being a “community” garden. Seven out of thirteen of our gardeners are from the community. Two new gardeners, Julie Mitchell and Lynnea Barnes joined us this spring. In addition, Linda Zhong is volunteering in the garden. Welcome, we’re glad that you’re here in the garden with us!
