Come out and help us work on the next step of our Community Space project! Last time, we got rained out, so there’s still plenty of building and painting to be done! All ages are welcome, masks are required.
Join us on Saturday, October 24th from 8 am – 11 am for our last Community Day of 2020! Enjoy free bagels and coffee, chat with your fellow gardeners, and get your hands in the dirt.

Need to have your plot tilled? Just want an excuse to spend the morning puttering around the garden? Come on out for an open garden work day. The garden crew will be on hand to assist you and to provide any tools that you may need to get your spring planting started.
This is our first Community Day of the year. Everyone is welcome to join us as we get our garden ready for spring planting! This event also serves as a new gardener orientation. Enjoy the outdoors with free coffee and bagels, and some hands on time in the dirt! Come for all or only a part of the morning.

Community Day is an opportunity to volunteer, get your hands in the dirt, learn something about gardening, socialize with your fellow gardeners, and, most importantly, have fun with us at the AUCG!
Everyone is welcome, so bring friends and family. There will be light breakfast and coffee available, as well as ice water and all gardening tools.
Please bring a water bottle or cup, hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and a pair of gloves (we’ll have extra gloves for those who need them).
Schedule of events:
- 8am – We will start off the morning with some bagels and coffee, courtesy of the garden crew.
- 8-10am – Our “project” this month is going to be replanting our wildflower beds.
- 10-10:30am – We’ll be touring some of the garden plots, getting to know what other gardeners in our community are growing and how. If you’re interested in giving us a tour of your plot (either on Saturday or at a future Community Day), please let me know.
- 10:30am-12pm – Educational Talk: All About Melons! with Marley Halter. We’ll be discussing what types and varieties of melons grow well in Alabama, tips for growing them well, and how and when to harvest. Finally answer the question “how do I know when my melon is ripe?” with a watermelon and cantalope tasting.
