Val and Michael went to the opening meeting of the growing season at the Pennsylvania Horticulture Society on Tuesday night, March 13. And we came home with a big new tray of seeds. And a pressing need to plan this year’s Urban Farm:
~To reflect on and determine what last year taught us, and
~How we might better organize our planting, growing, weeding and giving away/selling this year.
We also need to figure out how to get more people involved in our gardening effort. Have you ever missed getting your hands dirty and checking your green thumb? Or just want to learn something about urban, organic farming?
Want to be involved? Then join us for an organizing meeting on Sunday, March 25, after worship. (If you have any questions, please ask Janice, Jeanette, Val or Michael…)

The other half we sold through a table out front of the church in the courtyard on Saturday or at fellowship hour on Sundays.
