The snow is melting and the greenhouse is heating up! It’s almost time to plant.

Things always get busier this time of year. Don’t forget to check out our online calendar. We’ll be adding more events as the summer approaches.

For now, here’s what’s on the agenda…

Saturday, May 16, 11 AM to 1 PM – Work Party

It’s our first work party of the year! Come out to help us prep the soil for planting. We’ll be cleaning up what we can around the greenhouse and working to thaw out our compost in the outdoor bins. You can also sign up for proposed committees and we’ll chat about what we’ll be planting. Become a member if you haven’t yet, too. The temperatures inside the greenhouse are warm enough so that we’re hoping to get some radishes in the beds.

Tuesday, May 19 – Trivia Night (tentative)

We’re still confirming a venue, but we have loads of questions ready to stump you. Help us raise funds to assist with our operating costs. Always a great time and we definitely also think it’s a worthy cause.

Saturday, May 30, 11 AM to 1 PM – Work Party/Full Greenhouse Plant

We’re aiming for our earliest planting in the greenhouse ever. We’ve been monitoring our temperatures for the past couple of seasons and have decided to make this our day. There will be lots of work to do, so come out with your families and join the ICGS this year. We have so many exciting things planned!

We’ve got some exciting things coming up, so let’s talk about our successes from the past year and discuss the future, too. Join the ICGS as a member, or even as a board member.  We have plenty of ideas and want to hear yours, too.

Come on greenhouse season!  We’re itching to grow!
