Food & Fun at the Garden Barbecue!

Our annual summer barbecue was lots of fun thanks to a beautiful sunny day, good eats from the grill, and musical performances on the back patio.

Special thanks to John and Stephanie for getting food for the barbecue and working the grill (with help from Kenne). Corrine was a big help with set-up and Chancellor and Gabriel lent a hand with clean-up. Lynn came through with bubbles and chalk drawing for the kids and did a great job encouraging neighbors to check out the garden. And a big round of applause for all the musicians: Zo, Rick, Kim, & Robert! Thanks to everyone who came and brought food -- especially all the yummy desserts!

We had so much fun that we're thinking of organizing another music event sometime in October. We need volunteers to help out. If you'd like to get involved, please contact Michael at or at 902-9537.

BBQ on Saturday, 9/15: Bring a potluck dish

Our garden barbecue and picnic is coming up this Saturday, September 15 (noon until 4pm)! Hopefully we'll have sunnier weather than this past weekend so we can enjoy a fun time together in the garden.

Gardeners Stephanie Adrakatas and John Krull have once again volunteered to pick up burgers and hot dogs (including veggie versions) for the event and will be in charge of the barbecue. Feel free to bring other items for the grill. Gardeners are asked to add to the potluck picnic spread by bringing a side dish or dessert to share. I'm planning on brings an orzo salad and some raspberry squares!

We're still looking for musicians to perform during the open-mic. If you are a musician interested in playing, please contact Zo at 845-1489. Or if know someone who might be interested in performing, please help spread the word.

We're also planning on having some fun things for kids: bubbles, chalk drawing on the sidewalk, balloons, and other fun garden games.

I need some volunteers to help with set-up and clean up. Please contact me at 902-9537 if you can lend a hand. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone on Saturday. See you then!

Performers Needed for Garden BBQ on the 15th

Our summer barbecue is coming up on Saturday, September 15, and we're looking for musicians and others interested in performing during our afternoon open mic. Last year, we had a number of musicians and even a magician take turns showing off their talents on our mini-stage by the back patio. Zo is now recruiting neighborhood performers for this year's show. If you are a musician or have some other talent you'd like to share, contact Zo at 845-1489. See you on the 15th!
