St. Barnabas Community Garden

Sharing God's Blessings with Others Through Our Garden

Welcome to the 2019 Season

Hello St Barnabas Community Gardeners,

It’s a bit of late start for the committee, and we congratulate Jennifer and Matt, as they welcome young Blake to the world.  The Committee has been drafting up a calendar for the upcoming year, and reviewing our notes for the small changes that have been suggested at the wrap up meeting.  For the calendar, our first organizing meeting of the year will be March 16th, 2019 , at 1:00pm in the Church undercroft.  The first meeting is mostly to collect the forms and payments for the year, and a good chance to meet your fellow gardeners and discuss plans for the upcoming season.

On that note, please find attached three documents.  These are the forms for 2019

Please review the rules, which other than the dates, are unchanged from last year.  If you did not do so at the 2018 wrap up, please print the registration and waiver forms, and bring them to the meeting on the 16th.  Seedy Saturday is also scheduled for that day over at the Community Association.

The calendar of events for next year is drafted, and we will likely have the first big work day on April 27th, which is a bit later than last year to accommodate Easter Weekend.  Should the weather not cooperate, the work day would be deferred to May 4th.

Work days will be spread out similar to last year, on Wednesdays and Saturdays.   The tentative schedule can be found on the Garden website –

Thanks, and see you on the 16th,

2018 Garden Season

Looking out the window right now, it’s hard to believe we’re two weeks away from the first scheduled workday.  Thank you everyone who attended the kick off meeting on March 17th.  We’re looking forward to another successful season, but that will require some cooperation from the weather.  Stay tuned as we approach April 21st. If it seems like it will be an unhappy work day, we may take the decision to wait until the 28th. Please see the Calendar for our currents schedule.

Please note that there are still some plots available to interested gardeners.  If you know of someone who would be interested, please contact the committee via the garden email address, .


Wednesday June 28th Weeding Evening and Compost Tea Talk

Hello gardeners,
This is a reminder for this week’s (June 28th) Weeding Evening and Compost Tea Demo.
Please arrive promptly for 6:00pm, as we have a guest coming to provide a talk about Compost Teas.  Please also bring a $5 donation for her time. Afterwards we can get to work on the weeding and tree cleaning, and other activities as needed around the garden – ask Jen or Linda if you’re looking for a task. The talk may last up to an hour, depending on how the questions and answers go, so it can be a later evening than usual.
