The Start of Gardening for 2015


          We hope you have navigated the holidays and made it safely and sanely into this new year.

As a good start on gardening for the year is this greeting plus the garden application form for 2015 which can be found by clicking the link above.  The applications are due from returning gardeners by March 15.  Applications from new gardeners can be turned in now and will be recorded according to the date they are received in the church office.  Returning gardeners will have plots assigned on March 16 and then any remaining plots will be allocated to new gardeners based on the date their applications were received.  We will maintain a waiting list for new gardeners who do not initially receive plots.  There are frequently a few additional plots that free up early in the year that go to those on the waiting list.

The fees for plots are $15 each this year and this is reflected on the application form.  Please read and retain the first page of the application and turn the second page in to the church office.

Below are some snapshots by Dave of the garden under snow and resting in wait for a spring thaw and another year of growing our fresh vegetables.  Get out your seed catalogs and start planning!
