PREVIOUS EVENTS:


Our last Garden Building Day was held on October 28, 2017 with the help of volunteers from Teen Challenge and Reedley Middle College High School, and other great volunteers. We were able to build five more garden plots. We also did some more planting and finished installing a new shade structure.

We had a great time on October 13 & 14, 2017 at our Plant Sale & Information Booth at the Reedley Fiesta. We sold small plants and gave out lots of information about our nonprofit. We were pleased to meet many new people and hang out with friends.

We held a Garden Planting Day on September 23, 2017 with volunteers that helped plant our Fall/Winter vegetables. We planted broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower amoung others.

We held our second Gardening 101 Workshop on September 9, 2017 at the Reedley Community Center. This well attended workshop shared great information on getting started with your garden. Attendees also learned about preserving techniques for friits and vegetables. Natual refreshments were served including a great vegetable bread. 

On April 22, 2017 (Earth Day), we had a great Volunteers Day where we planted spring and summer vegetables. Volunteers also helped clean up our garden plot paths and helped with general maintenance.

We held a Gardening 101 Workshop at the Reedley Community Center on April 15, 2017. Participants learned about preparing and planting spring and summer vegetables, organic weed control and pest management, all about tomatoes, and other great topics.

Volunteers truely supported our Garden Building event on March 25, 2017 at our garden site. We built five garden plots, filled them with garden soil, and built and painted two garden benches. What an amazing day!

We held our first WaterWise Workshop on March 11, 2017 at our garden site where we learned what to buy and how to set up a drip irrigation system that works for our personal garden.

A CLG Volunteers Day Garden Building Event was held on October 29, 2016. We had a great day on a Saturday with over 30 volunteers that showed to help us continue to build our garden.

We had an Information & Plant Sale Booth at the Reedley Fiesta on October 7 and 8, 2016. Our student volunteers were awesome! We shared our message on the benefits of community gardening, sold plants and met many friends and neighbors.


MOVING FORWARD

Community Life Garden continues to initiate networking and social events that provide volunteers with opportunities to assist. These events focus on the benefits of community gardening, recruiting members, promotion and fundraising, and providing volunteer events. We believe these events help bring people together for a common purpose that benefits them and their community.
