Volunteer blitz and other news

As the clouds parted, Kamilla, Coy, and I took to the streets of SW DC in order to recruit volunteers for our July 31st build day. So far, we have 50 volunteers. But, we definitely need more! If you are interested in being apart of this momentous occasion, sign-up here: http://tinyurl.com/build-day

In other news, our group was featured in the Hill Rag. We want to thank our fellow gardener, Annette Nielsen, for putting this piece together. You can read the article online (http://tinyurl.com/hill-rag-article) or in print.

Our monthly meeting is this Wednesday, June 12th. We’ll be meeting at 7PM in the Southwest Library’s meeting room (basement level), 900 Wesley Pl SW, Washington, DC 20024. New and vintage members are welcomed!

The Lansburgh Park Community Garden was as the 2013 Project Orange Thumb garden makeover recipient from over 400 applicants. Envisioned as a place for community gardening and programming for veterans, youth and seniors, the new 8,000 square-foot garden will provide educational opportunities and give community members a place to reap the rewards of growing their own food.

Join us and Fiskars to help build the Garden by signing up to volunteer here.

Please save the date in your calendar.
