News from the Gardens

Hello Gardeners,

As most of you know we will be having our THIRD annual fundraiser, in conjunction with the Willoughby Wallace Library, and with the above-and-beyond support of Vaiuso Farms. The fundraiser is a plant sale held on May 14 and May 15, from 12:00 to 4:00 PM, at the Willoughby Wallace Library in Stony Creek.

Branford Community Gardens will be selling the vegetable seedlings that Vaiuso Farms have germinated and tended for the past several weeks. The week after Easter those seedlings will require transplanting into 6-packs. Hundreds of 6-packs!

I know some of you want to volunteer to help on transplant day. Right now I only know that we will be doing this the week after Easter, but I don’t know the exact date. Nevertheless, I’d like to get an idea of who would potentially be available during that week. Could you let me know if you could volunteer? I know that you can’t make an open commitment for an entire week, but starting with a list of potential volunteers, as soon as I know what day we’ll be transplanting, I can call up the troops.

The volunteering will be at Vaiuso Farms, will probably be in the morning and will probably require about three hours. If you haven’t done this before – it’s pretty fun!

Contact me if you have any questions.
