MULGRAVE GARDEN CLUB IS GROWING
Hello Everyone! As you may know, the Mulgrave Garden has been something I have been trying to start up and finally, as spring is almost upon us, we are going to start it. The club will run:
EVERY WEDNESDAY AFTER SCHOOL FROM 3:30-5:00 EVERY FRIDAY AT LUNCH. STARTING AS OF WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 22ND, 2012. IN ROOM 2030
So, because our lives are so busy, I’ve decided to make it a bit less complicated and just operate it as a drop-in sort of thing. Absolutely no strings attached, and please come as you will and for however long you’d like. It doesn’t have to be long, and it WILL be fun to come out and plant things. Note: This coming Wednesday, we will be shoveling and loosening up the soil. Also, we might start the compost bin (or at least get one established) and stuff like that. After that, the next thing we’ll be doing will be planting onions! (hopefully). ALSO: if anyone has a burning desire to grow something, please come speak to me or e-mail me and we’ll work something out… Besides that, have an amazing week everyone! Namaste! -David C firstname.lastname@example.org
