Urban Front Yard Coordinator
Despite a rainy cold start this planting season, and the challenges of the greenhouses being sold out so very quickly the beds and planters are looking great. Thank you volunteers for brightening up our community!
We had a rocky start after having some new volunteers backing out of their volunteer commitments unexpectedly with no notice at planting time, but our wonderful previous volunteers stepped up and graciously filled the spots. We have such a great group of volunteers and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart!
We did not have a spring Bed Coordinator meeting due to Covid concerns. I personally missed our annual Bed Coordinator meeting as it is such a great way to connect after a long winter. I know it’s just getting info out, but I enjoy the social part of seeing everyone’s smiling faces. But safety first.
I was hoping to organize a social event for our volunteers that would allow us to get together like last years tour of Bremner House but alas that will be put off to the future as well. If anyone has any suggestions for the future, please let me know.
We have a new board member this year; welcome to Brent Drader! I encourage all volunteers to consider becoming a board member. Sitting on the board is not a large time commitment and Beth keeps them from going on and on and on, and another perspective is always a good thing!
Wishing all dirty hands and a happy rest of the summer.
Until our next edition,
Volunteer, Volunteer Coordinator
