Hey folks,

Gardens 4 Humanity will be getting together at 4:30 pm TODAY,
Tuesday, Aug 24 at Southside Community Center (SSCC) 305 S. Plain St.
to begin preparing the gardens there and at the St. James AME Zion
Church just down the block for the fall and for the upcoming
afterschool programs at SSCC.  Extra tools such as wheelbarrels would
be helpful if anyone could bring one.  Gloves will be provided.

This is an opportunity for those looking to be involved in the
community to engage in an ongoing project and to meet some of those
who have been instumental in garden activism and advocacy in Ithaca
over the last few years.  The gardens at SSCC were started through a
joint effort between Elan Shapiro of Sustainable Tompkins, CCE and Dan
Flerladge of LACS in 2008.  Beginning in spring 2009, Gardens 4
Humanity began to play a role at the center through multiple avenues.
An initial community work party was held to create new garden beds and
replant perennials to beatify SSCC entrance way.  G4H has been working
with the Southside Afterschool and Summer Camp Programs to provide
gardening education, healthy snacks and fun exercise.  The 5 sections
of gardens serve both programs and feature herbs, veggies, fruits and
a native butterfly garden.

Don't forget about our Community & School Garden Training Series

Thanks and see you there,
Josh Dolan & Liz Falk
G4H/ CCE Community Food Gardening Educator
