On Saturday, April 23rd, local grower Mark Cain of Dripping Springs Garden is giving a free workshop about the basics of organic gardening. Come learn about irrigation methods and planting from an expert who has been professionally growing in this area for over twenty years. This workshop is free and open to the public, so invite you're friends! A great way to culminate Earth Week. Workshop begins at 4 pm at the Garden site. If you're a plot holder at the garden, be there at 3:30 for a brief meeting. After the instruction, we'll be working in the garden, so come ready to get your hands dirty!

On Saturday, April 30th, ten volunteers from WPCG are assisting a local community member and veteran begin a garden space in his backyard. We will be double digging the site, pulling weeds, and planting some starts. The space is small, so we only need about 10 people. If you are interested in helping out, email walkerparkcommunitygarden@gmail.com and let us know. Work begins at 8am sharp!

Walker Park Community Garden is officially full! All of our individual plots have been claimed. As always, anyone and everyone is welcome to spend time working in the Community Plot. If you're interested in growing food with other people this season, you can check out the Fayetteville Community Garden Coalition's list of other community gardens in the area where you can get involved! Check it out!

We hope to see you soon.
