Hi all y'all Alamers!

Here it is a first proposal for the Beautification day.

1.- Date: October Sunday 14th. OPEN TO EVERYONE, Bring family and friends.

2.- Schedule: From 9 to 3 pm. There will be 3 time slots of 2 hours each: 9 to 11, 12 to 1pm, 1pm-3pm. Everyone can stay as long as she/he wants, this schedule is to make sure we have people all the time to get things done. If you can stay longer than one slot, even better!

3.- We need at least 3 projects to work on. I have 2 proposals,  Please add up, if we get more than 3 we think about how to do it.

            -1.Fix compost bins, label them... The workgroup will set plan for composting over the winter.and ideas and suggestions for increasing our composting rate and volume. A proposal to increase should be submitted to the group after the beautyday.

            -2.Beautification of the meditation garden. That day the meditation garden will be fixed up (weeds, plants arrangements, mulch...). Also, the working group will cover some topics to plan close-future actions. Finally, a proposal will be submitted  to the group to vote in the next meeting. The topics could be:
                    -clear overgrown grass or clear all grass?
                    -set the meditation garden furniture: Do we want to buy other furniture?
                    -plan the Plants we want there. Are we going to plant another pomegranate, where that would be?
                    -Add up.

           -3-...Add up
           
Please, we need 3 Coordinators for the 3 diff projects. These 3 people will coordinate the tasks, delimit them in advance and make sure we have the materials to use. It should not be hard.

I have added a column named Food. Ideally we all could bring a little something to share in community.

Hi ACG members!

the Sharing is Caring day would happen on the weekend of June 9th-10th.

Ideally all of us would put something to share. Lucía gave me a great idea. She suggested to make a potluck too. In that case people from the neighborhood knows that there is an event-potluck with fresh produce samples.

We should do a good outreach. Spread the word among neighbors, please. If any of you have ideas to make the event popular, please, tell the rest.

Steve, tell all the urban farm project people to get them involved, please.


This should be a great experience to build up community.

IMPORTANT for all MEMBERS WHO DID NOT MET THE REQUIREMENTS AT THE MEMBERSHIP REVIEW: COLLABORATING IN THE EVENT ACCOUNTS FOR THE COMMUNITY HOURS.

 
 

Just want to say that the website is a starting point. We have to fill the content so just let me know what you would add to it.

Give me your inputs and among all of us can make it great!

It would be good to start putting info about the plants we garden, the timings to sow.... Helping tips, maybe a forum too...

;)
