Opening Day is moving indoors!

It looks like Mother Nature is sending a good wet storm our way Saturday, which will be great for the garden... but not for a party.

So we are moving the festivities indoors!

Howard Area Community Garden
Opening Day Celebration
Community Room at Jewel-Osco
Howard and Clark
Saturday, April 25
10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Please bring your signed contract and $15 annual fee, if you haven't turned them in already. (We will have extra copies of the contract on hand if you need one).

We can't rototill in the rain, but we will take signups at the Opening Day party and then Donald will do the tilling on Sunday (the rain should be gone by then). 

At noon, Gina Carpenter will present a workshop on the basics of organic gardening.

We will also have:
• Many packets of seeds to share and swap
• Snacks and drinks
• Keys for the new west gate lock
• The 2015 Plot Map and member contact info sheet
• An update on what's been happening in the garden (hint: LOTS!)
• A chance to visit with old friends and meet our new gardeners

A little rain won't stop our fun... see you on Saturday!
