Spring 2019 - Love and Peas Community Garden
2019 is upon us and where do we go from here? As we approach our 6th year of growing food at the “Love and Peas Community Garden” we ask ourselves, how do we grow?
We have had workshops, demonstrations, school tours, children’s groups, fed the poor and educated the ignorant.
But, after a long and hot growing season, a welcome break are the Winter months, but by end of December the seed catalogues start to arrive and dreams of growing new things excites us. But how do we grow as a group of volunteers and a community? After so much anger, resentment and distrust with government and powers that be, how do we grow or come together? Do we look for a better and brighter world after all this passes “and this too shall pass” or do we hold on to those feelings and become embittered and hateful? The obvious answer is that we move on… to hold onto those negative feelings is opposite of what growing food as a group means.
We are grateful for the people who have come to the garden and we will be thankful for the new group that comes. They always show up unannounced, a little shy but are always made welcome no matter their background. If you have ideas that can excite our little community garden, please reach out to us and “we hope to see you in the garden”
Annual Chunky River Float, please join us Spring 2019 for a “flora and fauna tour” of the Chunky River. The event will be guided by Gail Barton, one of the leading experts of plant life in the Southeastern US. It’s a fun day of relaxed swimming, wading, sitting in your canoe and learning about the diverse bio system of our region. Date and details to follow.
