And we're back! It's been a while but we kicked off the new semester by going back to the basics, looking at the 101s that are essential for gardening. Aside from this workshop being helpful for looking at soil types, water requirements and plant positioning (to name a few!), it also enabled us to rediscover our roots (quite literally!). It reminded us of who and what we are as well as why we do what we do. We were able to introduce people to caring for new life, debunk age-old fears about gardening and share our enthusiasm for gardening with the wider community! For a copy of the basics gardening guide, check it out on our website here: http://mucgarden.weebly.com/gardening-guides.html.
However amidst all this excitement, we had to say goodbye to our long time facilitator Pippa, who dedicated her time, persistence and love to the garden since its inception. We truly miss and thank you for all your blood, sweat and tears! With Pippa’s exit, we also had the arrival of 8 new coordinators, as well as Jess’ continued support, all of who are full of ideas and passion.
The success of our first workshop coupled with an exciting new team of 8 coordinators promises for a great semester ahead! So remember to stay tuned to find out more about our upcoming workshops and joint events!
