Chair, Development Committee
Bring a lawn chair, a snack (or appetizer) and a beverage of your choice and enjoy some time at BCRC’s community garden.
This is an event for all ages! All can help plant the last of our summer crops: tomatoes and sugar pumpkin seeds. And to ensure our garden remains healthy, marigolds will also be planted throughout the beds. Bring your gardening gloves.
We are in need of some herbs. If you would like to donate any of the following, please comment below: 3 English thyme, 2 basil and 3 flat leaf parsley and 1 curley parsley.
Come at 6:30pm to harvest garlic and the last of the peas and beets. There is also some weeding to be done before the 7:00pm planting.
Please come! We want to meet you!
