Hi all,

This is a friendly reminder of our Sunshine Garden meeting this Thursday, February 19th at 7pm at the Fulton Place community hall.

Please come down to put your name down for a garden plot, and learn about the plan for building the garden this spring.  We need to recruit 30 gardeners and fill 200 volunteer shifts to make this garden a reality!  Our garden boxes are designed to accommodate gardeners with limited mobility, including those in a wheelchair or walker.  We also will be involving children in the garden, and will be inviting children from Hardisty School, Capilano Playschool and Fulton Childcare to participate.  We will have a children’s garden plot!   Our vision is to “cultivate personal, neighbourhood and environmental well-being through a welcoming garden community”.  Note that you do not need to be a resident of Fulton Place to participate.

At this meeting we will be exchanging seeds and signing up to help grow seedlings for the garden!  Come grow with us!

We will also be talking about our volunteer recruitment plan for the garden’s construction.   Here is the link to sign up:  www.bitly.com/Fultongarden  Please consider signing up to help build the Sunshine Garden.

Agenda and prior meeting minutes attached.

Please share with your friends and neighbours.

Thanks,

Sherry Prokopuk
Garden Coordinator, Fulton Place Community Garden
