• Put the Augusta Garden to Sleep (w/ Potluck Lunch)

    October 23, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
    University of Maine at Augusta, 46 University Dr, Augusta, ME 04330, USA

    The UMA Augusta Community Garden has grown more than 700 pounds of vegetables for the Augusta Food Bank this year, but as Autumn moves on and it gets colder we need to get the garden ready for Winter. On Tuesday, October 23 members of the University of Maine at Augusta campus and the surrounding community will gather to put the garden to bed. We'll weed, we'll compost, and we'll batten down the hatches all day long, then settle in the garden for a long, snug winter nap.

    We need your help to make it all happen.

    This epic gardening session lasts from 8:00 AM to 5:00 pm. Come whenever you can. We'll have a potluck lunch at noon, so bring a dish if you're inclined. We'll also roast marshmallows over a campfire while we eat lunch. Yum yum.

    Come join us in the garden to lend a hand. We're just north of Jewett Hall on UMA's Augusta campus. We hope to see you there!

  • Bangor Garden Labyrinth w/ P&J Center

    October 24, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
    UMA Bangor Community Garden

    We need YOU to help us build the new labyrinth at the Bangor Campus Community Garden! Bring your friends! Bring your family! Bring your joy! Because we are going to have some fun doing some MEANINGFUL labor for the benefit of UMA and the greater Bangor community!

    WHAT IS THE GARDEN LABYRINTH?
    The UMA Garden Club is teaming up with the Peace and Justice Center of Eastern Maine, the UMA Social Science Program, the Bangor SGA, Bangor Student Life, and others to create a plantable labyrinth with a permanent gravel walkway.

    This project will extend our garden area by more than 1,700 sq ft, allowing us to expand our food distribution. We will continue to provide fresh veggies to food insecure students AND ALSO will begin to provide food to local shelters and pantries.

    Additionally, this project will create a beautiful meditative space on our campus, where anyone can come out, take a walk, and take a breath of fresh air. Shed your stress like a second skin.

    WHAT IS THE TIMELINE FOR THIS PROJECT?
    Every Wednesday until we are done, we will be constructing the labyrinth -- digging up sod, laying brush and wood chips and dirt in "hugelkutur" mounds that we will plant, laying the gravel path... We'll be out there from at least 12:00-3:00 every Wednesday (rain day will be the following Wednesday). Come when you can and stay for as long as you can.

    We will let the mounds winter over and plant them in the spring!

    WAIT, WHAT IS HUGELKULTUR?
    Hugelkultur is German for "hill culture" or mound cultivation. Basically, we will create small (~2ft high) mounds of brush and wood chips, cover it with overturned sod, cover that with more dirt, and plant. Hugelkultur retains water well and continues to feed the soil as the brush decomposes over *years*. Read more here: https://www.permaculture.co.uk/articles/many-benefits-hugelkultur

    HOW CAN I HELP?
    Oh, I am so glad you asked!

    1) Volunteer! Come out any and every Wednesday to help out. No experience necessary! If you want to volunteer but can't help at that time, reach out to Kati Corlew at UMA or Andrea Simoneau at the P&J Center to see if another time can work.

    2) Get a group together to volunteer! Even better than your two hands are your two hands plus more hands! Organize your friends, your clubs, your workmates, your classmates -- be persuasive! Tell them what a good cause this is!

    3) Edgers and shovels and wheelbarrows are also helpful, especially if you are coming with a group!

    Let us know that you are coming! Sign up in the SGA Office or Nottage Library. Comment on the event page which Wednesday(s) you can come, and how long you can join us those days!

  • Bangor Garden Labyrinth w/ P&J Center

    November 7, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
    UMA Bangor Community Garden

    We need YOU to help us build the new labyrinth at the Bangor Campus Community Garden! Bring your friends! Bring your family! Bring your joy! Because we are going to have some fun doing some MEANINGFUL labor for the benefit of UMA and the greater Bangor community!

    WHAT IS THE GARDEN LABYRINTH?
    The UMA Garden Club is teaming up with the Peace and Justice Center of Eastern Maine, the UMA Social Science Program, the Bangor SGA, Bangor Student Life, and others to create a plantable labyrinth with a permanent gravel walkway.

    This project will extend our garden area by more than 1,700 sq ft, allowing us to expand our food distribution. We will continue to provide fresh veggies to food insecure students AND ALSO will begin to provide food to local shelters and pantries.

    Additionally, this project will create a beautiful meditative space on our campus, where anyone can come out, take a walk, and take a breath of fresh air. Shed your stress like a second skin.

    WHAT IS THE TIMELINE FOR THIS PROJECT?
    Every Wednesday until we are done, we will be constructing the labyrinth -- digging up sod, laying brush and wood chips and dirt in "hugelkutur" mounds that we will plant, laying the gravel path... We'll be out there from at least 12:00-3:00 every Wednesday (rain day will be the following Wednesday). Come when you can and stay for as long as you can.

    We will let the mounds winter over and plant them in the spring!

    WAIT, WHAT IS HUGELKULTUR?
    Hugelkultur is German for "hill culture" or mound cultivation. Basically, we will create small (~2ft high) mounds of brush and wood chips, cover it with overturned sod, cover that with more dirt, and plant. Hugelkultur retains water well and continues to feed the soil as the brush decomposes over *years*. Read more here: https://www.permaculture.co.uk/articles/many-benefits-hugelkultur

    HOW CAN I HELP?
    Oh, I am so glad you asked!

    1) Volunteer! Come out any and every Wednesday to help out. No experience necessary! If you want to volunteer but can't help at that time, reach out to Kati Corlew at UMA or Andrea Simoneau at the P&J Center to see if another time can work.

    2) Get a group together to volunteer! Even better than your two hands are your two hands plus more hands! Organize your friends, your clubs, your workmates, your classmates -- be persuasive! Tell them what a good cause this is!

    3) Edgers and shovels and wheelbarrows are also helpful, especially if you are coming with a group!

    Let us know that you are coming! Sign up in the SGA Office or Nottage Library. Comment on the event page which Wednesday(s) you can come, and how long you can join us those days!
