Garden Updates — 04/21/2012 & Happy Earth Day

Hello Fellow Gardeners and Happy Belated Earth Day!

Just wanted to touch base with a few updates. Thankfully we finally had some rain, which should help the dry soil. I heard several of you were out there on Saturday, and I just wanted to say thank you to you all. The open area is progressing nicely, and the new gates look wonderful! We continue to make outstanding progress! We will continue with more work on Saturday, April 28th. Hope to see you there!

Susan Matacavage ask that I spread the word to all of your gardeners that we have coupons for Dan Schantz Greenhouse. They are free coupons that you present with your order. You present one coupon for every $10.00 that you spend, and the greenhouse gives Wesley Church’s Family Ministries $2.00; up to $4.00 per visit. This is a great way to help other ministries as we purchase our plants. A stack of the coupons will be at the Fair Trade Coffee table in the Atrium.

Lower Saucon Township Historical Society and the Saucon Creek Watershed will sponsor a rain barrel workshop at the Lutz-Franklin Schoolhouse, 4216 Countryside Lane, Lower Saucon Township, April 28th. Come out to the schoolhouse sometime between 9:00AM-1:00PM to make a rain barrel for your yard. The cost is $40 with all materials supplied. (Garden store rain barrels can cost up to $160.) Please contact Ron Horiszny if you are interested so he can have the necessary supplies on hand. Ron’s email: rwhoriszny {at} hotmail [Dot] com

Thanks Everyone,
Jason & Jaimee Walters
