January at the Alma & 10th Garden

True, it can be the coldest and most rainy month of the year, but January signals a lengthening of daylight and the promise of warmer days ahead!

Here are some updates for 2019:

GARDEN REGISTRATION

We will officially start Garden Registration and Garden Fee collection in February.

Our deadline for registration and payment will be the Meet & Greet event in April (date TBD). Until then, don't sweat it!

And to clear up any confusion: returning gardeners will keep the same garden beds into 2019.

GARDEN WAIT LIST

Springtime is when we tend to see the highest turnover at the garden, which means we'll be dipping into our wait list to fill the empty beds. If you know anyone who's interested in joining us, now is a good time to encourage them to sign up to the wait list. No guarantees, but you never know!

Here's link to sign up to the wait list: http://www.communitygardenapp.com/

GARDEN TIP: GROWING HERBS INDOORS

January can be a dull month for gardeners, but despite the cold weather and the dark days, there are always ways to welcome spring into your home. A windowsill herb garden brings that freshness right into your kitchen, and the startup costs/effort can be pretty light. Any container will do, just make sure there are holes in the base for drainage. Here's a simple starter guide to indoor herb growing. You can always transplant into your garden bed come spring.

Happy New Year!
