MAY 2018
Stay tuned here for upcoming events THIS MAY at Eagle Ridge Community Garden, Pushing Up Daisies and the Living Lab.  We’re waiting on Mother Nature to give a sustained soil temperature of 55 degrees.  Planting sooner may result in less than ideal results.

Mother Nature is ALWAYS in charge of planting season and she’s in no mood to stop raining and warm up the soil.

We look forward to organizing a volunteer planting event at Eagle Ridge Community Garden and Pushing Up Daisies Community Garden as soon as the weather warms up a bit more.
