cleaning up the back garden. Get all the
corn stalks and weeds pulled and everything basically cleaned up so we can plant spinach soon for our winter garden. We have 2 gardens in this back yard. The one we are cleaning right now is the far back garden. When we have finished harvesting the front
garden, we'll do the same. Email if you can come and haven't found all of the garden addresses on the website.
Sat., Sept. 24: Pick up bagels at 2 Riches Bagel Stores- 6200 So. Highland Drive and 8700 So. Highland Drive. Pick up between 8 - 11:30 am and bring to my home.
Friday, Sept. 23, 5:15 - 6:30 pm Help with Harvest Pickup
I am doing the Holladay Harvest shares but need someone to drive the Harvest shares to Taylorsville garden members. Help me load food into your car, leave my Holladay home at 5:30 pm, stay at Taylorsville Garden (church parking lot across from garden) from 6 - 6:30 pm to distribute food to those who have RSVP'd. It's approx. a 12- minute drive from my home to Tay. Garden

Wednesday: 12 noon: Holladay B Garden: Work with Laura Kennedy

Save your falling leaves!Now is the time to think about preparing FREE nutrients to your garden this winter! Some of our gardens won't have winter crops growing in them so we'll apply this treatment ONLY to certain gardens.
Save your leaves, bag them up, then check with me first. Once the garden is cleaned up and will NOT have fall plants growing in them, you can sprinkle your leaves all over the garden, then the decomposed leaves will be tilled into the soil in the spring, adding lots of nutrients and mulch into the soil for next year's garden.
NOTE: Do NOT add any leaves in any of our gardens without checking with me first.
