Equinox Greetings and Potluck Invitation Saturday, March 22, 2014 4-7pm

21 Mar

Hello Festival Beach Gardeners and Friends,

You are invited to our Spring Potluck this Saturday, March 22, 4:00-7:00pm. We’re missing the Equinox by a few days, but we’re excited about celebrating Spring with our friends at Festival Beach!

Please bring a dish to share and your own plate, cup, and utensils (we’ll have a wash station set up).

We have some spring-time celebration ideas in mind, but would also welcome yours! Also, please let us know if you can come a little early and help set up or if you can stay a while afterwards for clean-up.

Children and musical instruments are welcome!

Happy Spring Equinox!
Kathy, Regina, and Katie, potluck planning team

PlantSale_FB_030814_01

Fellow gardeners,

This Saturday is our monthly workday. We are also holding a plant sale. We will focus most of our attention on keeping the garden tidy for our guests and assisting in the sale. We will, however, have a few tasks to complete.

We are also asking for help on Wednesday and Friday in preparation for the plant sale. If you are available and want to get your work hours in, we are mowing and cleaning and hauling trash. Please reply directly to me if you are interested.

Thanks and see you in the garden.
