Vauxhall Community Garden Wrap Up

The Members of Golden Rule Lodge No 24 and Golden Rule Chapter No 50 meet at Vauxhall Community Garden on Saturday, November 24th at 10:00 AM to close out garden. The members cleaned out all garden beds and discarded any left over vegetables that had been damaged by the changing of the weather. This gave the members of the Vauxhall Community garden a opportunity to reflect on the Vauxhall Community Garden and to plan for next years garden. Some items were to beautify the garden by adding flowers along the fence, as well as ideals on getting more community involvement for planting next season. Over the winter months our plans are to actively seek more community involvement by providing planters as well as plants to the community in return, educating the community, seeking their help in maintaining the Community Garden as well as implementing exercise for the participants.
The Vauxhall Community Garden plan is to add more boxes, make them higher and accessible for the seniors in our community. We will also try to get more of the community youth involved by contacting the schools in Union by the end of January 2019. A bulletin board will be installed at site advising the Community about Vauxhall Community Garden upcoming events
