We hope to have quite a bit of activity in and about the garden over the next 2 Saturdays. Saturday morning the 28th. at 10 we will meet to assign "parcels" of garden space. This year we will be doing things a little differently in order to decentralize responsibilities. Although the produce will still be shared communally, individuals, families or small groups will "adopt a bed" and be responsible for planting, weeding and otherwise caring for that space. If it rains we will meet in the back lobby of Seagrove United Methodist Church.

On Saturday March 7th. at 10 we will start rebuilding the beds using leaves, shredded paper and topsoil/manure mix. As it stands right now people are coming from as far away as Wilmington, a group from Covenant Garden in Fuquay-Varina, and hopefully even some college kids from UNCG. We will start by tilling up the old beds, then applying the compostable materials and finally the soil/manure mix. If you wish to join us and have a wheelbarrow, shovel, or hoe, please bring them along. We will gather in the Seagrove United Methodist Church parking lot at 10, and later have a covered dish meal around 12 or so.
