Summer 2017 - Love and Peas Community Garden
We the volunteers and members of Go Green Meridian hope that everyone has had a fruitful and productive summer. Believe it or not, Summer 2017 will be over September 22nd, less than 8 weeks away. The “Love and Peas Community Garden” has flourished with all the rain, we have grown and shared 10 varieties of Heirloom Tomatoes, 4 varieties of Jalapeno Peppers, 6 varieties of hot peppers, and 4 varieties of eggplants. In keeping with our Southern roots, okra, snap beans, peas and squash is a big part of our harvest.
The Love and Peas Community Garden, will continue our summer hours, “Weeding Wednesday” from 4:30pm – 5:30pm every week and “Summer Harvest Saturday” 8:00am – 9:30am every weekend. This schedule will change when the days become shorter. Please join us in the garden for great food, better conversation and a safe and learning environment.
“Hope to see you in the garden”
Go Green Meridian
Due to the excessive rain this Spring, the Canoe Trip on the Chunky River to see the blooming Mountain Laurel did not happen. The river levels were too high to safely enjoy the river but, this Fall we will schedule another "float", stay tuned. This is open to all, it's a wonderful day on the river, we will be guided by our own Gail Barton. DATE / TIME to be announced via email.
