Yesterday was the final SW Gardens Meeting before the July 31 Gardens Build Day. We had a whopping 18 attendees! Of course, yesterday wasn’t our final planning meeting ever. We will still have plenty of issues to manage post-July 31st, and plan to continue meeting monthly thereafter.
In even more exciting news, construction on the garden has begun! You can visit the site at Lansburgh Park (1098 Delaware Ave SW) to check it out, which we did after last night’s meeting. (see photo)
The Southwester ran article about Garden Build Day on the front page of July edition, with several great insights from representatives of the garden planning team. http://thesouthwester.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Southwester0713-V3.pdf
Our volunteer total is at 76 (and counting). We’re hoping to add several more volunteers before the big day. If interested, don’t forget to sign up: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1zRyvVDCmipykfUyxM2hGL2pYqnzAAKcX-g3_w511Abw/viewform
