We came, we saw, we planted bunches and bunches of flats with vegetable seeds so we also conquered. Sure some seeds were so tiny that a person wished they had brought reading glasses but all in all a fine time was had. We planted and chatted and planted some more. We wandered the greenhouse to admire all the sprouting seedlings. If you would like to purchase some wonderful plant and veggie starts the Growing Gardens plant sale takes place at the greenhouse 1630 Hawthorn Ave., Boulder on the first three weekends in May from 8:00am – 4:00pm. Oh, and then there was the reward at the end of our project – coffee and pastries at Lucky’s! Yum!
In September volunteers got together and did some cleaning up of the gardens at the Callahan House.
Adventurous volunteers from the club made their way up the hill to the green house at Rocky Mountain National park . With gentle June breezes blowing to help keep the workers cool, over 450 seedling pines were transplanted to larger pots. These young tree will continue their growth for another couple of years before being planted in the park.
