Let May be filled with digging, planting, and weeding!
Posted April 27, 2016 by Kelly Smith
Planting season is upon us and there is so much going on with TG right now. May is looking jam packed right now! I’m sitting at almost 7 months pregnant right now and I can honestly say that I plan on spending every spare moment gardening – and there’s no shortage of opportunity. I’ve got some raised beds in my backyard that are ready to go, a plot at my local community garden that I’m excited to start this year, and a number of other projects that I can get involved with on weekends to lend a hand. It’s an awesome opportunity to get outside, meet friends, work communally, and also expose my son to a lifestyle that I truly believe in!
If you’ve been interested in getting involved with Transition Guelph, this is a great time of year to jump in. All events are open to the public with no experience required. TGers are friendly, open, and come from all walks of life. I can honestly say that this is the warmest group of people I have ever had the pleasure of spending time with. So no excuses! Come hang out!
This Saturday April 30th: Join us at the GROW Communal Gardens to learn and share skills with experienced gardeners! 9am – 12pm
Tuesday May 2nd: Come hang out at 10 Carden from 7pm-9pm as we try to (successfully) watch Revolution and eat yummy snacks
Saturday May 7th: The Guelph Community Orchard is going to be hanging out at Harcourt United Church from 9am – 12pm. Stop by and lend a hand!
Saturday May 14th: Treemobile sorting day! We are still looking for volunteers as we DOUBLED orders from last year (yay Guelph!).
Sunday May 15th: Treemobile planting/delivery day! If you’ve got a vehicle or a shovel to share, come plant!
PLUS: check out all the amazing reskilling workshops hosted by Minga Skill Building Hub
Details for all the events are online here: http://www.transitionguelph.org/events/ Please share this post.
It would make me beyond happy to meet some of you in person and make new friends 🙂 <3
