Join with neighbors to watch Symphony of the Soil at the Ravenna-Eckstein Community Center, 7 pm, January 31, 2014. Doors will open at 6:30 pm We will watch the movie together and discuss it afterwards. Symphony of the Soil is a 103-minute documentary that explores the complexity and mystery of soil. Filmed on four continents and sharing the voices of some of the world’s most esteemed soil scientists, farmers and activists, the film portrays soil as a hero of our planetary story. Using a captivating mix of art and science, the film shows that soil is a complex living organism, the foundation of life on earth.
HARVEST POTLUCK CELEBRATION
FRIDAY October 4, 5:30-7:30 PM
inside the Ravenna Eckstein Community Center
Bring a dish to share with your neighbors and celebrate the joys of community gardening!!
Here’s a link to a short video made a couple years ago about the garden. What a treat to see that we are still going strong and attracting new neighbors who want to work together and share the harvest!
Our late August Work Party, previously scheduled for Sunday August 25, is going to be changed to SATURDAY, August 24, from 10 AM - 1 PM. Thanks for being flexible with us!! There should be LOTS of squash, tomatoes, and maybe even CORN to harvest!
We’ll be working from 9 am - 12 noon on Sunday July 28 to avoid the heat, so come on down and see for yourself how great it looks and how much better it will look after we all get done! We’ll be harvesting beet greens and chard and lettuces galore, and planting some overwintering crops. COME CHECK OUT HOW BIG THE PUMPKINS AND SQUASH ARE GETTING, TOO!
We all had a great time pulling up carrots and beets that had made it through the winter, planting peas and lots of lettuces, and weeding and cleaning up. The new wall is fabulous and it is going to really increase our planting space. We’re looking forward to seeing you all at our next work party, March 17 from 2-5 PM.
Our first 5 work and harvest parties for the year are scheduled for:
Saturday March 2, 10 AM – 1 PM
Sunday March 17, 2 – 5 PM
Saturday March 30, 10 AM – 1 PM
Sunday April 14, 2- 5 PM
Saturday April 27, 10 AM – 1 PM
WE HOPE YOU WILL COME JOIN US TO MAKE THIS YEAR’S GARDEN THE MOST ABUNDANT YET!
The Ravenna Community Garden is a place where neighbors work together and share the harvest!!
