GNG 3rd Annual Plant Sale

The Goettingen Neighbors Group 3rd Annual Plant Sale was a great success! Each year we get more people involved in our neighborhood activities, such as our neighborhood garage sale, block party and our various clean up days. We had a strong turnout on a sunny Saturday. Our members educated people about plants, discussed neighborhood issues and raised money to maintain the Goettingen Neighbors Garden. We had a celebratory dinner together when the work was done. It was an all-around success. We hope to see you at our plant sale next April!

WEEDS GALLORE!!!

Thanks to all the volunteers who helped us weed over the weekend. The hill and garden is lookin a lot better. Though there is a lot more to do, a great effort was made. - Today brings more rain and in turn more weeds. ) : We have monthly clean-up days scheduled, usually towards the end of the month, so please look for those dates and come support your community garden for a hour or two. Please also tell your neighbors and friends about us and our upcoming 3rd Annual Plant Sale. Ciao for now and stay GREEN.

Rain, Rain

We can’t keep up with the weeds that the February rains have brought! Although the California poppies are doing very well, they have to compete with “uninvited guests,” as one gardener likes to call weeds. We are getting out there when we can but it often is raining when we have free time.

The planning is coming along well for our 3rd Annual Plant Sale. April 24, 2010 is the date. We are hard at work soliciting donations of plants and pots, as well as potting the plants that we have. This year started earlier so it might be a bit easier plus our plants will be more mature than previous years, which will hopefully mean that they will sell for a better price. Feel free to contact us if you have donations or if you wish to volunteer.

See you April 24th!

Good news on the horizon...we have set tentative date of Saturday, April 24, for our Annual Plant Sale. In the next month, we'll need help potting plants, and soliciting and collecting donations. We invite anyone who is willing to help out to contact us at our email gngcore@gmail.com, one of us will answer any of your questions. If you have plants or starter plants that you would like to donate - you may drop them off to us or we can pick them up. We are also accepting gardening books, decor, or tools, or gently used items for our BIG raffle. Ciao for now and happy planting.

Unfortunately our garden was badly hit by the recent storm. An old large Cypress Tree uprooted and fell. Several of our beautiful plants were damaged by the fallen tree. The City came to remove some of the tree limbs they thought posed a safety issue, and a couple of the neighbors worked over the weekend to remove more of the tree and roots, however, plenty more work left to do. Thanks Larry and Chris!

Eventually, new plants will be needed to replace those damaged. Stay tuned for further development and if you wish to give us a hand, please email us at gngcore@gmail.com. Also, heads up...we are in the planning stages of our next fundraiser - the Annual Plant Sale tentatively scheduled for last week of April 2010.

In November 2009 the Goettingen Neighbors Group (GNG) welcomed a new addition to the Goettingen Community Garden - BIG BEAUTIFUL BOULDERS. Thanks to the SF Parks Trust Innovator Award, GNG was able to purchase several boulders for the top and bottom of the hill. The boulders totally complete the look of the garden - they look great. Thanks also to Paul from Broadmore Landscaping for helping us to stretegically place the boulders. Could not have done it without cha! What a big job, litterally. Please stop by to check out the new look of the garden and enjoy the beautiful view from the top of the garden.
