TJMS Community Garden Volunteer Policy

Families and community volunteers are welcome to join the TJMS Garden Club on Saturday mornings from 10:00am to noon. We can accommodate up to 20 people comfortably because we are a large garden.

In order to keep this timeframe engaging and productive for the TJMS Garden Club members, we ask that children under 6th grade be accompanied by a responsible adult.

We are super bummed to delay the Harvest Festival and final scheduled workday of the season until next weekend, but at least we will be dry!

We are getting ready for next week’s Harvest Festival— Garden Club students will be designing a selfie station and signs starting tomorrow, so today was the day to acquire wood and prime it. 

We are shifting Garden Club to tomorrow (Thursday) since there’s no school Friday. We will be in the garden with volunteers for our standard volunteer workday Saturday from 10-noon. Then join us for garden tours, apple cider, cookies, music performances, and a movie next Friday evening at the Harvest Festival.Image attachmentImage attachment

We are coming to the end of the growing season and we’ve had some really productive workdays in the last few weeks, so we are taking this weekend to rest and recharge. See you in the garden next week as we prepare for the Harvest Festival on 10/29.

Apple picking?

Thanks to the volunteer crew from Deloitte, who helped us prep another trench+hill to improve the soil. We'll be planting winter vegetables and cover crops here soon!

They dug out a deep trench, mixed the dirt and clay with compost from our new compost bins, and piled it in the adjacent row. Then they filled the trench with wood chips. We'll plant in the hill this fall, and next year we will turn the soil again, so the hill will be on top of the wood chips, and put another layer of wood chips into *that* trench. This will improve our soil much more quickly than our previous method of adding 4-6" of leaf mulch every year.

We are keeping an eye on the weather report, and we will be checking how wet the garden is tomorrow afternoon— if it’s too wet, we will either reschedule or cancel Saturday’s workday.
