Southwest Community Gardeners gathered Saturday afternoon November 2nd for the first Meet & Greet event, an opportunity for plot assignees to introduce themselves to one another. By-Laws were voted upon and updated. A new Secretary was elected: Jessica Henson Cagley. Coy and Sylvia gave us an update on the 10 community plots, which feature brand new steel framed signage.
Following introductions, topics discussed included:
- first discussion about potential rules about minor construction or minor modifications to cedar beds
- reminder that we’re an organic-only garden
- ideas for more workshops: potato bucket construction and composting.
- hosting a Spring Meet & Greet
Following the discussion, meet & greet attendees raked leaves inside the garden and local youths joined to rake leaves at the immediate garden periphery.
