GARDEN BLITZ SCHEDULE
Ok, let's get a bit more organized on the blitzes...we have Rita Smith scheduled for May 17th. We need rock! Who can help with that? Maybe everyone bring a few on their own? Here is the link to the event (hopefully it works): https://m.facebook.com/groups/173552312722216?view=permalink&id=636810253063084&ref=m_notif¬if_t=group_comment&actorid=580146315#!/events/275444685966583?acontext=%7B%22ref%22%3A4%7D&ref=bookmark.
I believe we've had interest from a few more people on doing a garden blitz. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the following people have shown interest, in chronological order:
@Lisa Winegarden Deyoung
A little travel is involved with the McGraw's and they've expressed that they don't necessarily need a lot of help. They, however, would be great for a cooking class! With that said, I wouldn't mind letting them host a blitz in the fall and we just take care to bring seedlings to the upcoming garden blitzes to help them get started with some variety in their garden. Jimmie, let me know if that sounds good.
I believe Lindsey Lee could really use our help, so let's see if we can get her on the calendar. I can help plan stuff for any time, but am not available to attend much until late June. Lindsey, I would love to attend if you don't mind waiting until then. We have a tiller and can help you plan for the layout between now and then, assuming we have everyone's input from the group here! :)
Tyler, you may be able to get a tiller out to your place in the next week or so, if you're in a hurry. We can all volunteer to bring seedlings to the various gatherings over the next month or so to get you started. If you're not about to get a tiller out there anytime soon, then we can get you on the schedule as well. Definitely don't schedule around me, though! I'm just trying to get the ball rolling. But if you are waiting for me, it will be after Lindsey's in June.
Same goes for Lisa, who I couldn't tag in this post...I may try to tag her in the comments when I get home. She obviously needs a tiller and we don't mind providing, but it will have to be after we get through this busy schedule and Lindsey's garden. If anyone with a tiller is willing to jump out there and get their ground broken up, then pleeeeease do! We don't need garden blitzes to break ground, but garden blitzes sure are fun and help get our new gardeners motivated!
Please give me feedback on what we're capable of, willing to do, etc, and get this stuff scheduled! I will create the Facebook events and organize the calendar here accordingly!
More planning details to come on other items for the group! :)
