welcome to common ground
the kalamazoo community garden network
Easier said then done after this winter! Finally the temperature is starting to break and the snow is starting to melt . . . we'll be in our gardens before you know it!
If you are interested in doing your own plant starts, now's the time to get your supplies in order and start working on it. As a parnter in Common Ground, the Kalamazoo Nature Center will be growing some plant starts for us, and we are happy to be able to offer the Plant Start Giveaway again this spring. Check back for details on when and where that will take place this year. If you haven't already ordered your seeds there's still time, or you can buy them locally as the planting season gets a little closer.
We're also looking forward to another great year at th Community Garden Lending Shed where area gardeners can borrow gardening tools at no cost. We'll be holding regular weekly hours during the peak spring season, and then "by appointment" throughout the spring and summer. Once we get all our equipment tuned up and the shed re-organized for a new season we'll be posting the Lending Shed hours.
Many of the services from Common Ground, such as the Plant Start Giveaway and the Lending Shed, are free of charge, all we ask is that participating gardens donate a little time back to help support the network. For volunteer opporunities, please contact Catie at info@CommonGroundKalamazo.com.
