St. John Fisher Roman Catholic Church

30 Jones Hollow Road, Marlborough, CT 06447

 

The next meeting will be held in the church’s basement on Wednesday, April 29th at 7:00pm.

 

On Saturday, April 18th the construction of the garden beds will begin. Volunteers are greatly appreciated. The rain date will be on Saturday, April 26th.

 

The garden dedication will be on Sunday, May 17th after the 10:30 Mass.  Anyone is welcome to come and celebrate the blessing of the garden.

 At the meeting on March 25th, we decided that 6x3 is the most convenient size, with 4 raised beds. The garden will be built on the triangular piece of land in front of the downstairs entrance. We may use a rototiller to help dig up the grass so that the garden beds are able to be prepared. The date that this will happen is Saturday, April 18th, with the rain date being Saturday, April 26th .

 

Tomatoes for the garden have already been ordered, and more seeds will be ordered shortly. The crops will be kept simple, as we want them to be practical for everyday use.

 

At the next meeting, we will plan where to plant specific crops, and continue working towards getting the garden up and running. For more details an agenda will be posted the week of the meeting.

 

Thank you,

Meghan, Paisley, and Victoria
