Wrapping up the Garden Season

Thanksgiving is this coming weekend which means the garden season is almost at an end. It's time to dig those last potatoes and carrots, save your seeds and start preparing for winter.

It's been a very bountiful season this year, especially with our two farmer's markets and pumpkin festival, and I think we can all feel very proud of our achievements. The community gardens have been in Moose Jaw now for seven seasons and with each year our gardens gains momentum, becomes more self-sustaining and the community is knitted together. Truly, our project is a fantastic success. Thank you to all of our dedicated volunteers - the gardeners, steering committee, neighbours - and to our generous sponsors - Yara Belle Plaine and our community partners.

The final work bee of the season is scheduled for Saturday October 13. We're meeting 10 - 12noon at Home Street and 1 - 3pm on Grey Ave. The deadline to have your garden cleaned up is October 15th.

Any questions as the season wraps up, give me a call or send me an email. See you at the work bee!
