Gardeners and volunteers, Saturday, Sept. 16, is our next Garden Workday from 8:30am until 11:00am. We will be cleaning out beds and preparing for fall gardens. If you missed the second annual Garden Potluck luncheon, you missed a delicious lunch, useful door prizes and Terry Garner of Urban Harvest who shared his thoughts on how to be a better gardener. We were delighted to have Julie Lambert, our former Dir. of Lifespan Religious Education and the founder of our Community garden as an honored guest!

Gardeners, be sure to put August 19 on your calendar for our Second Annual Garden Potluck from 11:00am until 1:30pm. We’ll have a speaker from Urban Harvest, good food, and door prizes! Come meet and share with other area community gardeners. Contact us for more info at: email@example.com
We had a nice turn out of gardeners on a warm but successful workday on May 20th with George, Siok Hong, Jane, David, Jill, Ana Bruce M, and Nathan. We discussed the 2nd annual Community Garden potluck on August 19th, and will invite a guest speaker and gardeners from other community gardens in the area.
Our donation beds are producing a nice crop of tomatoes and a few peppers. Siok Hong picked 5 lbs of long beans and took them to the ICM food bank in League City. We recently took cherry tomatoes and peppers also. Urban Harvest has donated seventeen sweet potato slips to our Community Garden that have been planted in tall mounds north of the garden. Siok Hong Chen-Sabot has planted milkweed and zinnias to attract butterflies. Drop by bed 14 and see how many different butterflies you can count. We appreciate Cindy Lewis, Jane Malin and David Malin for continuing to water and weed during this hot, dry time.
Our Community Garden’s next workday is Saturday, June 17th from 8:30 -11 am. Volunteers are always welcome. Check out this Urban Harvest link and select sweet potatoes for planting and nutrition information.
Many thanks to Emily Savino for all her work as our web master.

Our Community Garden’s next workday is NOT THIS Saturday, May13, BUT will be on May 20 from 8:30 -11 am. Volunteers are always welcome to help with our donation beds.
Urban Harvest donated 2 types of tomatoes and peppers and they are doing well but require help in keeping them in cages. We just received sweet potato slips from Urban Harvest that need planting.

During early March we cleaned up several donation beds and George planted two beds with tomatoes and peppers that Urban Harvest donated to our Community Garden. BAUUC Community Garden recently rejoined their association. On our March 18th workday, Jane and David provided tomatoes, peppers plants and yard long bean seeds. George donated zucchini plants that he had sprouted. Many thanks to volunteers Ellie, and grandsons Louis and Ben, who tilled donation beds! Ana and Siok Hong came after we had made our group photo and also helped a great deal. Siok Hong is helping start a Community Garden at another church. We still need volunteers to help with our four donation beds. We appreciate Cindy Lewis for continuing to water when needed.
Our Community Garden’s next workday is Saturday, April15 from 8:30 – 11 am. Visit our Community Garden blog at https://bauucgarden.org and check out the Urban Harvest link for good gardening information on growing vegetables.
