By the time most of you get this, it will probably be March (cold) again and you won't be tempted to get into your garden beds several weeks too early.
First - all classes are FULL. Oh, BUT WAIT! Except for this one, our previously discussed Small Scale Water Features Class with Emilie Liepa. We floated the idea some weeks ago about giving this class a go on Tuesday, April 13. Many expressed interest, so now it's time to put your (free) money where your mouth is and sign up for this class because we are looking for a minimum of 10 participants. Please email email@example.com to let us know if you would like to attend this class.
Well, like everyone else in the universe, we are now on Facebook, so give up the love, people, and become fans if you are social media inclined. We have announced an upcoming event on Facebook, the Longfellow Sustainability Workshop, which is this Saturday, March 20 from 10 to 3 at Sanford Community School in Minneapolis. More info here: www.facebook.com
The other upcoming event is the following Saturday the 27th of March: Gardening Matters Community Garden Fair at Sabathani Center in Minneapolis; more at gardeningmatters.org.
In shameless product hawking news, we have soil in! Onions and potatoes are ordered and should be in by the first of April. Mulch, soil amendments and corn gluten are all coming end of March/beginning of April as well. We've got some real pretty raised garden beds made of cedar, made in Minnesota, some pottery and birdbaths made in the US of A (hard to find!), and we are on the lookout for lots more local decor for your enjoyment.
Stop on by for some seeds and fresh cut flowers!
