Happen Garden Update

Many, many, many thanks to our team of dedicated EWB volunteers who participated in the Happen Garden volunteer day last month. With your help, we were able to complete the main teaching patio and construct the posts for the comfort station.

The Happen team can’t stop raving about the work the team did last month. There is new community commitment to this part of the neighborhood and they think that support has grown based on what they are seeing in the garden. Again, the Happen team and I thank you and the EWB community for all the support and hard work. As Happen says, “Community is not just where you live, it's how you live with other people.”

Volunteer Opportunity

We have a few small projects we plan to finish on Saturday, November 10 at the Happen Outside garden at Hoffner Street in Northside following the GCP General Meeting. Volunteers are also welcome to join us at 9:00 AM when garden volunteers will be digging up the bulbs for the winter. At midday we will be working on the two small 4 ft path connections to the patio and completing the comfort station pavers which are about 1/3 of the way in right now.

We would love to have any volunteers come by for a couple hours of work after the November EWB meeting. You are also welcome to join the garden volunteers starting at 9:00 AM. Lunch will be provided (and maybe we can get a beer around the corner afterwards). Thank you!
