Good Day friends,
Hope your enjoying the rainstorms.
There is a few announcements for this month.
First, We'd like to thank those of you that have been showing
interest and have put your support and backs into the arduous labors
of turning the lot into a healthy place for the garden to thrive in.
This weekend we cleaned up the second flower bed
and plan to add the remainder of the donated soil
(thanks Holly, Wood, and Vine and Gwen)
to the area, so as to begin planting some shade loving plants.
The garden also received a group of tomato,
sunflowers,cucumbers, and beans for the front bed,
so thanks goes out to Radim and Alex for your contribution.
Its come to our attention that a few plants in need of a home
are finding there way to the garden and we'd like to say,
Keep them coming.
Considering the early stage of the garden we welcome any additions,
if you have an unhealthy plant you'd like to donate,
we'll happy to access its condition and if its curable,
find a place for it.
Also for the end of the month we are planning
an Eldert Street Garden fund raising event
at the garden and at Junto Gallery.
Fund raising Arts exhibit
Saturday May 30th @ 4pm
Eldert Street Garden
315 Eldert Street
The Fundraiser will be our first attempt at reaching out
to our community of friends, families, interested advocates
of the arts and anyone else who desires to contribute
to the good times and building process of the Eldert Street Garden.
There will be a Barbecue in the afternoon at the garden and at sunset
we are hosting a multimedia group arts exhibition at Junto Gallery.
We will be presenting paintings, sculpture, performances,
and musical acts from both New York based artists and out a town
talents coming through to be involved and show their recent creative endeavors.
There will be a silent auction wall with small works on view.
Healthy, homemade treats will be sold at Junto Gallery
to accompany a musical act and a special performance
by a talented up and coming artist.
I'll be posting a flier by next week and sending invites soon,
so hope you can come through.
Thanks for your time and have a great day,
