Cucumber Beetles in the Garden!

Look out for cucumber beetles up in the garden. If you are planting any kind of squash or cucumber be sure to cover them with a fine mesh. Cucumber beetles can be picked off individually and squished. They don't just go after cucumber plants, they will eat radishes, kale, rhubarb and more. Click here for more information on cucumber beetles

Maintenance day rescheduled for Sunday June 9th, 1:30-4pm

Hello Gardeners,

It is looking like tomorrow is going to be awfully wet. We are rescheduling the maintenance day for the following day. Sunday June 9th from 1:30-4pm up at the garden (780 McEvoy st.). Rain or Shine! Please dress for the weather.

If your plot is already planted please consider coming out anyways to help us lay down fresh wood chips over the paths and weed/plant the community plots. Hopefully we will be able to have our paints and blank signs out for sign painting.
Have a wonderful weekend!
