We have enough plot leaders to support 25-30 more volunteer shareholders, so, if you’re interested in being a volunteer shareholder, turn in your signed CSA agreement and payment as soon as possible!
We can also support 6-8 more sponsors and/or shareholders, so, if you’re still interested in being a sponsor and/or shareholder, turn in your signed agreement and payment as soon as possible.
I will put any general volunteer information on the Volunteer Schedule tab above, so check back there for volunteer dates and scheduling. If you would like to help out at the garden, but cannot commit to the volunteer shareholder requirements, we will keep you abreast of more “general” volunteer opportunities at the blog…so be sure to check back often (or, even better, sign up for email updates via this link – also in the links to the left).
If you have items that you would like to donate to the garden, we could use them! Please contact us if you have items to donate – or let us borrow.
We had a great meeting on Tuesday – thanks to all who were able to attend! We tentatively have 8 plot leaders, with a possibility of a few more, which means we can support around 16 shareholders/sponsors and around 50-60 volunteer shareholders, depending on how many volunteer shareholders our new plot leaders recruit on their own.
I will have the presentation and handouts that we used at Tuesday’s meeting up on the blog later this evening, so check back later on for more information.
We are diligently recruiting volunteer shareholders to “man” our plots. We hope to have group garden days out at the garden the first two weeks in May. Following the group days in May, the volunteer shareholders will meet with their plot leaders individually in order to determine your volunteer schedules throughout the season. If you are interested in being a volunteer shareholder, please complete the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) agreement and put it in the Grace Garden mail slot with your payment in the staff work room at Grace Community Church. We will be operating on a first-come, first-serve basis based on our volunteer shareholder capacity.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me! Check back later for a more detailed update of Tuesday’s meeting!
Anyone interested in picking up some free organic fertilizer for the Grace Garden? Email me if you would be willing to pick this up for us!
Check out this article about some sources for FREE seeds. If you’ve never had a home garden before, now’s a great time to start, especially if you use free seeds.
If you have any extra seeds, the Grace Garden could use them!
Hoping to see you all tonight at the Grace Garden meeting!
Attention Grace Gardeners: mark your calendars for next Tuesday, April 14th from 7:30 – 9pm in Room N251 (the room right across from the choir room at the top of the north wing stairs – take the stairs immediately to your left when you walk in the office entrance and it will be the first room on your right).
We will delve into more details about the garden and ways for you specifically to get involved.
At Grace this weekend, we’re talking about the hope we find in the resurrection for the restoration of creation. Come join in on the conversation – and visit us Grace Gardeners at the Outreach kiosk if you do!
