Colony Farm Community Gardens (CFCG) Name Change

We recently sent a notice with more details about our name change. If you've got an idea to contribute, especially if the name can work with the acronym CFCG, please submit it, here, before October 21st.

We will revisit the renaming challenge at a Members' Meeting (on zoom) in November when we will have completed the initial brainstorming for names.

Last Work party of the Year

October 14, 1-3 pm
Many jobs available including bin-loading, pruning, work in the food bank gardens and preparing for winter.
Have your garden gloves, sturdy footwear, and dress for the weather.

Winterize Plots by November 1

As per the CFCG Guidelines, remember the deadline to winterize plots is November 1st. Actively growing crops may remain in place.

Here are some tips to get your garden ready for winter.

Big thanks to Andy for your craftsmanship!
