Sunshine Community Gardens Tour and Plant Sale March 5, 2010

Today my friend Cecilia and I hosted a little tour of the Sunshine Community Gardens, as they were preparing for their annual plant sale fund raiser.  We had a tour of the gardens, and an informative talk about how this “all volunteer” garden operates.  Responsibilities are shared, garden space renters all volunteer, and this makes it a real working community garden.  They were receiving shipments this morning when we arrived, and we got to see the volunteers working together to get the transplants from Gabriel Valley Farms, off loaded and set up on the tables, from which they will be sold.  The sale is tomorrow, and will be packed, so go early and expect to wait in line.  I don’t mind waiting in that line, because I always meet some interesting folks, gardeners, all.

    The tour was fantastic! It was really cool to see all the eclectic gardening styles. Oh, and the gloves fit like, you know, gloves. Thanks for the invite. I’ll be in line by 7:30 with your heirloom list in hand.
