*INVITATION TO KICK-OFF OF COMMUNITY LEARNING GARDEN
AND REQUEST FOR SEEDS, MATERIALS AND TOIL IN THE SOIL*
*The whole community is invited to gather
Saturday and Sunday May 9th and 10th
at Garden 579 (579 George North)
to clean up, build and plan
for the 2009 community learning garden season.
We will be raking, cleaning, building boxes and creating a community plan
for the garden. Everyone is welcome to lend an hour or more or to just
stop by and lend a smile. We are seeking seed, soil and sage advice.

We are looking for donations of plants, seeds, compost, soil, mulch,
LUMBER, gardening tools, building tools, fencing, straw, rainbarrels
outdoor art pieces, books relevant to growing, sustainability and
community building and any other resources that one might offer to create
a downtown oasis.
We will be having our community planting weekend on the 30th and 31st of
May and our kickoff community potluck that same weekend.
Garden 579 is a collaborative, collective project and it is 'run', planned
and actualized by those who choose to participate. We are seeking persons
to take an active role and be a guardian of Garden 579 in 2009. This
commitment means that you are interested in participating when you can
throughout the season as an active part of a collective organizing and
planning gardening and community learning activities...
