Hey Gardeners!

By Brad Pass

It’s NOT too early to start thinking about Garden fresh tomatoes, herbs and squash. It only seems so if you look outside. So – crank up your imagination and conjure mental pictures of spading warm loam, planting and tending the food and flowers for 2013.

Gardening News:

  • The East Phillips Community 17th Ave. Garden (2428 17th Ave. S.) usually has a few openings for garden plots every spring. If you are an East Phillips resident and are interested, Contact Brad Pass at bpass@usinternet.com to get on the Wait List. For immediate attention, add “GARDEN” in caps to the subject line.
  • The Community Garden Spring Resource Fair is just around the corner! Join Gardening Matters and gardeners from across the Twin Cities Saturday March 9, 2013 from 12-5pm at Metro State University in St. Paul. A special keynote presentation by LaDonna Redmond of the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy on “Reconstructing Our Relationship with Land” will kick off the day, with a local panel to follow. Be a part of the Good Food Movement conversation and get connected to the resources that will make this year’s growing season a success at the 9th Annual Community Garden Spring Resource Fair! $10 suggested donation at the door or pre-register to avoid the lines at www.gardeningmatters.org
  • The Local Food Resource Hubs Network provides support to residents who wish to grow their own fresh produce, helping to ensure greater food security and healthy food access. Hub membership provides seeds, plants, classes, tools and networking. To join a hub in one of four Minneapolis neighborhoods or the Midway neighborhood of St.Paul, sign up online now! Or, download the printable sign-up form with program information at www.gardeningmatters.org.
  • Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a way for you to avoid the work and still reap the harvest of organic local gardens by paying in advance for the best produce available on a weekly basis as it is harvested. There are many farms and gardens from which to purchase shares. See MinnesotaGrown.com for a list. I am familiar with Amador Hill Farm at the Women’s Environmental Institute in North Branch. Go to http://www.w-e-i.org/ and click on “Purchase Your 2013 CSA Shares Now” for information.
