Community Garden2013 Community Garden Meeting Thursday, March 21st at 5:30pm

The Office of Civic Engagement is launching the Community Garden for the 2013 growing season with a potluck dinner this Thursday starting at 5:30 pm in the Fireside Lounge. We will talk about plans for the year and finding donations of lumber and seedlings. A special presentation will be made by architect students who designed a greenhouse for the garden. Fundraising for the greenhouse will be discussed, as well. 

The Community Garden grew over 1,200 lbs of fresh produce for the Augusta Food Bank last year. We hope to double that number this year.

Volunteers are needed, from UMA and the Augusta community. People only have to commit a couple hours a month if that's all the time they have. Many volunteers do so during evenings and weekends. Families can bring their kids - we have a sprinkler.

Expert gardeners appreciated, but no experience is needed!
