Settling in for the Summer

It's been a busy spring over at the Yara Community Gardens! Our plots are full and we're welcoming more gardeners than ever before with numbers rising to 134 members. New gardeners, long-term gardeners, young families and retirees are working together to cultivate the soil and grow the community at our three garden locations. 

We've hosted an Introduction to Vegetable Gardening workshop, had sets of two membership meetings and, yes, even rototilled the gardens. Cleaned up and ready to go, the garden is just waiting to be planted. Take advantage of the rain forecast and get those potatoes in the earth! 

I'll keep you in the loop with upcoming events, but for the next few weeks it's just you and your garden. Have fun! 

If you are interested in having a plot but missed out this year, just give the office a call and we'll get you on the waitlist for next spring.
