Spring Fever ?

Hi Neighbors!Okay, its still winter, but I have the urge to plant things--you usually have production by now, being a lot warmer-so whats growing?!?!.  Cleaning out the greenhouse, I found a potato from last year, it had a root on it about 2 cm long...my urges are not alone!  I have been watching the perennial grasses start to green up in my garlic bed I overhauled last year.  My new laptop has died twice, even though it was only 10 months old.  I am still using my old Mac, but got dependent on…See More

Welcome to Boulder Community Gardens!

Thanks for visiting ... If you live in the Morongo Basin and have an interest in growing your own food, flowers or native plants in our unique High Desert environment, you're in the right place! We're all here to share freely what we know, ask about what we don't know and so help each other make our gardens happen. There's also a bit of 'social' to our network! Feel free to post an event (see below-right on how-to's), post questions/answers to your blog, and join groups that interest you. Peruse the site and let us know what you think -- we're all co-creating it, so feel free to jump in!
Enjoy --Amara Alban

All members are invited to create events. When you do, please consider noting:

1) If you need help hosting your event (lighting, music, parking attendant, etc.).

2) If there is a requested donation (we recommend no one turned away for lack of funds).

3) What folks should bring (eg. chair, plate, utensils and cup, etc).

4) Encourge everyone to RSVP so you have an idea of who will be attending.

5) All the obvious stuff like, date, time, purpose and place!

Note: Be sure to broadcast an invitation to your event to the entire network (if that's your intention). You can also send to your uploaded email lists ...just check out the options. Also, be sure to 'feature' your event so it shows up at the top of the front page.

Let me know if you need any help getting the word out about your event -- I'll be glad to help.

Cheers --Amara
