Mark Community Garden News
Matthew 20:25-28 Jesus
called them together and said, "You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials
exercise authority over them. Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and
whoever wants to be first must be your slave-- just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve,
and to give his life as a ransom for many."
Won’t you consider helping with the St. Mark Community Garden?
Official garden kick-off is Saturday June 1st. Hope everyone will join
us. (most likely at 9 a.m.) This year, will hopefully be a little bit more garden friendly in regard to the temperature. FYI
- St. Patricks day is the day to begin seeds indoors for spring planting. Cold weather crops like lettuce, beets, radishes,
cabbage, carrots can be started mid April - especially in the warmer raised beds.
New this year is a program aimed at harvesting extra veggies for
the St. Blaze food pantry. Alot of cucumbers and tomatoes went bad just because they weren't picked. So, we will have flags
that you can post by whatever veggies you don't mind sharing. Our official drop off day at the pantry will be Thursday mornings
at 9 a.m. If you would like to join us in picking on those days, please drop me a line.
I hope you are all returning, and look forward to hearing from you
- either yes or no. If you are returning, we ask that all garden waste be placed in the dumpster. There was a large amount
of tomato waste left on the ground by the gate last year. If you have a bucket or two, you can dump it in the mini-compost
pile in the south/east corner of the big garden. Thank you in advance for your interest. Kristie and Mike
