At our Parkdale Community Garden Steering Committee meeting February 16, 2016 we had many items on the agenda. Moira, Audrey and our guest from the Silver Springs Edibles garden team brought us up-to-date on the monthly Speaker Series starting in April as a collaboration between Community Gardens in YYC. Team leads provided reports: Meghan for the Children’s programming coming to the garden, Marg for Compost and Soil, Colin and Maureen on communications (Facebook, Twitter, blog and webpage); Maureen on Perennial and herb gardens, Marcel on Build plans and Audrey on the Food Forest. We are working on creating dedicated pages for each of these teams to make it easier to follow… Most of these pages are just blanks-in-waiting…
