COMMUNITY GARDEN SOCIAL
Come meet fellow gardeners, get inspired by touring a community garden, and talk with your neighbors. Light food and drinks will be provided!
DUG is hosting a garden get-together at Rosedale on Wednesday, August 31, 2022, 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm. All are invited. It’s a great opportunity to catch up with your garden neighbors and maybe discover all of their gardening secrets.
You can sign up at the link below, or just drop in for a while.
NO. SEVIN. E V E R!
An empty Sevin bottle was recently found in the garden. Rosedale is a completely organic garden. Never, ever, ever use Sevin, Roundup, or any similar chemicals.
Not only are the chemicals unsafe for human consumption, they are deadly to bees, especially honeybees.
If you are struggling with pests in your garden, explore organic methods to control them. Fellow gardeners possess a wealth of knowledge on the best methods to treat garden pests and love to share that knowledge with other gardeners. DUG is another invaluable resource. Check their website, www.dug.org, for information.
MASON JARS NEEDED
I’m making some flavored simple syrups and vinegars for the harvest sale, and I would love it if people have 4oz to 8oz mason jars that they would be willing to donate for that. I’ll put a large plastic bin under the kiosk tomorrow in which people could leave them. Also, if anyone grows horseradish or berries or other herbs/plants that they think would make good flavored vinegars or simple syrups, I would love some to make a few more types! Email me at email@example.com or text me at 303-229-6011 to arrange a time to connect. -Allison
CALENDULA PETALS NEEDED
I’m getting to work using some of the wax the Bee Team has been stashing away to make some hand salve to sell at the Harvest Sale. I’d really like some Calendula petals to include in the salve – Calendula is really soothing for the skin! If any gardeners have some petals or stems they are willing to share, please let me know. firstname.lastname@example.org Some lavender would be nice too!
I attached a photo for reference… Calendula (aka “Pot Marigold”) reseeds and volunteers itself nicely, so some folks may not even realize they have it growing in their plot. ? I just need the “ok” and the plot number(s) and I will go harvest a little bit. -Lori
