December Work Party – Saturday Dec 15 2012, 10am-2pm

We will have the only work party of December at CUH on Dec 15th 10-2. We’ll plant perennials in bed #1 and cover the north end of the bed with landscape cloth to discourage Equisetum. If it’s dry enough we will continue to remove paving squares from bed #2 and we’ll mulch another of the Bressingham beds. We only mulched one of them earlier.

 

Bring clothes for the weather, gloves, and weeding and planting tools. We’ll have lunch at Burgermaster after the work party for anybody who wants to join us.

Holiday Party – Sunday December 16, 3-7 pm

Bring Pot luck food and wrapped White elephant gifts. Lynne will provide the beverages (wine and cider). The rule on white elephant gifts: you cannot bring back what you received last year; but you can bring back something you received two years ago, or earlier.

 

November Work Party – Potting Up for the Spring Plant Sale

Saturday, November 3rd, 10am-2pm

We had a successful planting party last Saturday. Some of us cleaned the daffodils while others weeded the Equisetum out of the bed. Then we planted over a thousand daffodil bulbs. Won’t it look lovely in the spring!

Now we’re planning a potting up party at Kandy’s. We have bulbs to pot up from our bulb sale, and clumps of plants to pot up, both for our spring plant sale in April. We also need to prep the nursery area for winter. If it rains we can do the potting up in Kandy’s garage and greenhouse and keep out of the rain, and leave the prep of the nursery for a dry day.

We’ll be at Kandy’s 14555 Stone Ave N, Shoreline. Park along the street. Bring clothes for the weather, pruning shears, gloves, etc. Kandy’s is one block east of Aurora on 145th. Take the NE 145th exit from I-5 and head west towards Aurora. Just before you get there, turn right onto Stone Ave N. Kandy’s house is at the bottom of the hill. Park on the street.
