MGs & Interns,
We have several opportunities this week for putting all you gardening knowledge to work or, to learn some new skills. We will have our normal work days on Wednesday and Friday at the garden and on Saturday, as part of our continuing efforts to add an educational aspect to a work day, we will meet at the Veteran’s Memorial park with the focus being: “Planting Colorful Fall Annuals.” The park is on Hwy 87 in Port Arthur near the Rainbow Bridge and we will meet there at 9:00 and work until about noon; bring your hand tools and water – bathroom facilities are available. This can be counted as community service hours as well as education. If you’re coming from Beaumont take Hwy 69 to Hwy 73 to Groves and stay on 73 to the Hwy 87 Taft Ave exit, and stay on the feeder road to the park. Local VFW members may be there as well so let’s show up in force to let them know how proud we are of their service to our country.
For MGs who are mentoring interns who do not have computers would you please phone them to advise them of the activities listed above and please keep them posted on any pertinent information in these garden team weekly updates. This would really help to keep the lines of communication open with them.
If you can come out for any, or all, of next weeks activities your help will be greatly appreciated. The Veteran’s Park event is very special to us so if you can spare only one day, that would be a day well spent.
Thanks for your continuing efforts in helping to improve our garden. Feel free to call at any time with questions or suggestions.
