Final Work Party – December 1, 2018 10 AM Rain or Shine
Make plans now to attend the final work party for the 2018 season as we put the garden beds to rest for the winter. We need all members to assist by clearing weeds and foliage from your garden plot before we add lime and straw to cover the beds before the rainy season. This is a chance to provide important Volunteer Hour time and to congratulate ourselves and others for valuable contributions to our garden.
As a special incentive we will be raffling off a free garden plot of your choice for the 2019 garden season at the end of the work party. You must be present to win. Remember, many hands make light work for everyone. We look forward to seeing you at the garden on Saturday, December 1st!
Bandon Good Earth Garden 2018 Plant Sale
May 4th and 5th – A BIG Success!
The annual Good Earth Community Garden Plant Sale was held this year at the Farmers and Artisans Market in Old Towne Bandon. Thanks to all the community garden members, volunteers, friends and sponsors who made this year’s sale a big success! We sold hundreds of organically grown vegetables starts, herbs and flowers, unusual house plants and shrubs and flowers for outside. The silent auction items included, among other things, a fantastic 6-foot tall Norfolk Island Pine and a sturdy potting bench! Special thanks to Jennifer Ewing and Master Gardeners for providing information to enhance the gardening experience for all participants.
Join us again for next year’s sale.
