Hope to see many of you and peruse your favorite gardening/sustainability
You are invited to the “*Hamline Midway Community Garden Potluck*” at Horton
Park on Sunday, September 25 at 12:00 p.m. This invitation extends to
HM community gardeners, supporters, interested friends, family members, and
neighbors, to make this a CELEBRATION of neighborhood community gardening!
In addition to enjoying lunch in the park, we will also have the opportunity
to *view a short Public Art St. Paul video* that highlights Hamline Midway
community gardens! The footage for this video was taken during a gathering
this summer at Groundswell where a number of community gardeners from the
Midway described gardening together, the gardens themselves and the
important placemaking roles of these spaces. The staff from Public Art St.
Paul synthesized our comments and overlaid them with video they shot in the
Further, we are inviting attendees to the potluck to bring* a new or
favorite gardening book*! Soon we will be under a blanket of snow, and
garden inspiration will be a welcomed antidote. After perusing each other's
titles at the potluck, we will have new book wish-lists ready for the
upcoming dark and cold nights.
On the 25th, bring along any kind of food that you would like to share, your
own place setting to eat from, and of course a book! Horton Park is located
between Minnehaha and Englewood Avenues, and between Hamline and Albert
Avenues. Look for us at the picnic tables in the middle of the park. We look
forward to seeing you and celebrating the fruits of our labor.
**Note - the Hamline Thomas Community Garden potluck for September 18 has
morphed into this event and will NOT be held on the 18th - See you at Horton
on the 25th!*
