Produce will be available to the public at the garden on Saturday mornings during August and September from 9:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. (we are often sold out by 11:00 a.m., so come early)

MEETING SCHEDULE:

Due to possible changes in venue for future meetings and events, please check here regularly to find out where we will be meeting and when. We are currently scheduling our regular meetings for the second Tuesday of each month.  The White Mountain Community Garden will hold its annual elections meetings on Tuesday, September 11, 2018, in the event room at Solterra, 5408 W. White Mountain Blvd, Wagon Wheel, Arizona.   The regular Board meeting will start at 10:00 a.m.  The Active Membership meeting will start at 1:00 p.m., at which time the annual elections of the directors and members-at-large for the ensuing year will be elected.  Then the newly-elected board will hold a brief meeting to elect its officers for the ensuing year.  All meetings are open to the public.  We encourage all members to be present. If you are not yet a member but are interested in learning more about the community garden and how you may want to participate, please come and find out about all the numerous gardening, volunteering, and sponsoring opportunities available.  Membership dues for 2018 are $40.00.  If you have any questions, call Mary Alice Vertz at 602-810-8175 or email wmgardeners@gmail.com. 

AS the September membership meeting will include annual elections, all active members are asked to attend this important meeting.  A proposed slate of the directors and members-at-large to be elected by the active membership at the meeting on September 11, 2018, has been disseminated to the active membership together with the elections procedures.

GARDEN NEWS:

In addition to the articles in the Maverick magazine (which we understand are now archived for retrieval), as well as our AZ Mountain Gardening programs which are available through Show Low TV on cable and on U-Tube! (There is a direct link to it from our WMCommunityGarden FaceBook), We are also going to start having articles every other Friday edition in the White Mountain Independent!

Our kids Junior Master Gardening classes during the month of July were a huge success.  We are already making plans for next year, and if you have a child that might be interested in attending next year, please email wmgardeners@gmail.com.

We had a presence at the Special Kids with Special Needs Resource Fair held July 28th at the OLS Event Building in Snowflake, that was well attended and extremely informative.

We had a presence at the car show at Frontier Field on Saturday, June 2nd, in conjunction with Show Low Days.  On Saturday, June 9th, we had our Welcome & Welcome Back Potluck & Festivities, along with a moving Memorial Service for Beckie Kroeger.  

We had a ribbon cutting ceremony compliments of the Show Low Chamber of Commerce on June 28th for our new Gazebo, which is a delightful addition to the garden.  Come by and see how the new garden is looking!
