Welcome Back!

Welcome back to Temple, Gardeners!

Here's a quick overview of what this semester is going to look like:

-  Our Main Garden has moved! It is now located on the corner of Diamond and Carlisle (Next to White Hall).

-  As we are still working out the logistics of our new garden space, we will be dedicating the garden exclusively to community beds this semester.

-  General Body Meetings will be on Thursday at 8 in the Howard Gittis Student Center. Room location will be announced on a week by week basis. For room locations, check the blog/social media or sign up for TCG's weekly emails (temple.vegetables@gmail.com).

-  Garden Hours will be held on Fridays at 4.

Hope to see you at tonight's meeting in HGSC Room 217B!

Thanks to everyone who participated in/attended our Spring Feast. We had a great time, and we hope you did too! We raised a whopping $750 dollars, and we are pretty excited about it. The money will be used next semester as we move into our new garden and we will be donating a portion of our funds to the Church of the Advocate’s Supper Club. Thanks again for your participation!
