First Community Garden Meeting - Wednesday 1/13/10
1. Wednesday, January 13, 2010 (6pm - 8pm)
1st Garden Meeting
Chelsea Collaborative, 300 Broadway
Spring is right around the corner and we would like to start planning for 2010. Mark your calendars and join us for a brainstorming meeting. Please email any ideas and/or comments prior to the meeting to Misty. Agenda to include:
- Development of an Executive Board
- Brainstorming on: workshops & activities, workdays, fund raising, committees, communication
The area outside the fence adjacent to the garden is under development. Carpet remnants were donated to us by Chelsea Floor Covering Company for covering the area to stifle weed growth. Thank you to Chelsea Floor Covering Co. and to Joe, Rob, Linda, Charles, Jennifer, and Ted for stopping by to help lay down the donated carpet before the snow fell on 12/19!
A special thanks to Misty for making the "carpet connection" and to Joe for loading, unloading and transporting the stuff to the garden.
3. NEGEF Boston Grants Initiative Grant
The Collaborative is going to help us apply for a grant through NEGEF for 2010. Preliminary paperwork is already in the works. The grant application deadline is January 15th for a spring decision. We will keep everyone posted. For more information visit www.grassrootsfund.org
