Hi gardeners!

My name is Julia and I garden in plot #8 right next to the compost. Since we seem to have a lot of bins this year, I wanted to let everyone know that we are actually gardening that little strip between our raised beds and the fence post. I've marked this area with sticks and will try to get a little wire fence up soon. Please be careful not to step on or put bins in this area. Thank you so much and I look forward to seeing you all this spring/summer!

Thanks again,

Julia

    Hi Everyone,
     
    I thought this email might be interesting.
     
    The Mid-Cambridge Gardeners' Listserv is a great way to keep up with events
    happening in Cambridge.
     
    The Get Growing Festival should be a good opportunity to meet other
    gardeners. I think the gardening stuff will be on the brick road between
    the two halves of the COOP.
     
    Happy Growing,
    Tim
