Back in 2010, the Warwick Community Garden began as a small gardening project. By 2011, it had doubled in size. With the addition of a drip irrigation system in 2013, the garden truly flourished. It's been a local staple ever since. To prepare for this year's crop, a Warwick Community Garden 2017 pre-season meeting will be held this Saturday. The club invites everyone to attend.

Warwick Community Garden 2017 Pre-Season Meeting
Current members and curious residents are all welcome to attend the Warwick Community Garden 2017 pre-season meeting. Membership costs just $25 per year. This meeting also doubles as orientation for new members. So, this provides the perfect opportunity to ask questions about membership.
At the meeting, topics of conversation include what to plant, when to begin planting and general duties that need to be performed by members. Basically, it's time to get excited about the upcoming spring season. Currently, the weatherman predicts mostly sunny weather on Saturday. As a result, guests might have the opportunity to tour the garden after the meeting adjourns. Furthermore, nothing goes to waste in this garden. Our local Ecumenical Food Pantry receives any "extra" produce each season.
Benefits of the Warwick Community Garden
Community gardens offer a variety of benefits. First of all, they improve the quality of our air and soil. Next, community gardens help reduce our carbon footprint. Less miles to travel from farm to table means less reliance on fossil fuels. In addition, they create a better understanding of nutrition for children and adults alike. Composting offers another positive because it helps reduce waste in our landfills. Finally, gardens help foster a sense of community pride.
Please consider becoming a part of the organic food movement in our community. Commit to attend the Warwick Community Garden 2017 pre-season meeting. Membership has its privileges.
