Will it freeze? Won’t it freeze? When will it freeze? Despite all the warnings, our gardens have escaped frost so far. Nevertheless, it’s time to start the clean-up process.

We have received the generous offer of some volunteer help for this Sunday, October 10. Volunteers from Crossroads Presbyterian Church in Mequon will be able to come and help us out from 10AM to 2PM as we begin our buttoning up process.

We will be finishing up distribution of the last of the wood chips on the garden paths of the older beds. We will also begin cleaning up any plants that are finished for the season.

Please come if you can. You can harvest your late veggies and work with our volunteers as we distribute the last of the wood chips and do some clean-up.

Pot Luck
We’ll also be having a pot luck lunch in the garden at noon. Please come and bring a dish to pass. This will be a great time to visit with our volunteers. They are very curious about urban agriculture and community gardens, so let’s take this opportunity to spread the word.

Upcoming Events
We are planning a big final clean-up for the first two weekends in November, when we’ll be removing the last of the spent garden plants and putting in our cover crop of winter wheat. Please mark your calendars for those big clean-up days – November 6 and November 13.

See you in the garden!
