and Flower Garden

10 a.m. to Noon

Santa Maria Community Garden
910 S. Oakwood Drive, Santa Maria


We're having a "fun day" this Saturday to pull a few weeds and talk about future plans.

Bring a chair, some food to share if you want, water to keep hydrated, gardening gloves, and your ideas. We'll talk, then do some work, then talk again. 

Bring your kids, too. We’ve had children as young as three years old help out, and we’ve had high school and college students as well young adults, middle aged adults, and some who are a bit older. This is a multi-generational, multicultural effort.

We hope to see you Saturday. Please let me know if you can make it. If you're not sure ahead of time, just stop on by!

I plan to attend. I hope some of you will join me.
