APRIL 12, 12-4: PLANT SALE, RAFFLE, MURAL, MORE!

DON’T MISS THIS, GARDEN FRIENDS! GET IT GROWING!

This coming Saturday, April 12th from 12-4 at the Foster Powell Community Garden

The Plant Sale: We are collecting donated plants from neighbors. You can bring them to the garden on Friday the 11th or Saturday the 12th between 10-12 or email 62ndgarden@gmail.com to arrange a time. At this time we have: Iris, Lily, Clumping grasses, Native crabapple bushes, raspberries, peonies, “Becky” daisies, hens & chicks, rhubarb, a 5-6 year old Magnolia tree but who knows what else we will get? We will also have some baked goods and the famous FO-PO ceramic mushroom oranments for sale ( you may have coveted them on the garden tour in years past, these ones will be available in several springy glaze colors).

Woops! sideways.

The Raffle: Raffle tickets are $1 and you can get as many as you like! The grand prize is one year’s use of the first 4′ x 8′ x 30″ raised cedar garden bed plot in the community garden. It will be filled with dirt and, as we receive them, the winner will get compost and veggie starts. The gardener will also have access to our garden tools, trellises and water. Best of luck to all of you who want to be the first gardener at FPCG. We have 2 other homegrown raffle prizes, too! Neighbor Andy is brewing a special beer for the garden and we’ll be awarding one lucky raffle ticket holder his special brew! Neighborhood Artist Geri has donated this lovely garden inspired art glass window that is ready to catch light in your space if you have the winning ticket. “There are a few spaces open on the window so that you can add to it”, says the artist!

The Mural: The main body of the mural/gate signage will be ready to begin installing on Saturday. We need your help! Wooden flower cut outs will be available to paint at the event! Bring the family so everyone can make a mark on the neighborhood.

This is the biggest event we have held at the garden and our only planned fundraiser so if you like what’s happening, please come by and show your support on Saturday-tell all your friends, too! Even if you don’t want a bed in the garden, a plant, ceramic or glass art, beer, to paint flowers or to hang out and drink a delicious cup of Speedboat Coffee (what kind of a Portlander are you if you don’t want any of those things!?), come anyway to be part of your neighborhood. We can accept cash and check donations to the garden, as well.
