After a pot-luck including beans and applesauce we welcomed 2 guests. 


Things are looking peachy in Panama Park now that there is the possibility of a Community Garden! Our whole meeting was dedicated to gleaning knowledge from our two guests who spoke of potential, benefits, and how-to’s. There was an emphasis on gathering neighbor’s ideas and views before breaking ground. 


Be sure to turnup at our next meeting September 22nd to share your hopes and ideas for Panama Park’s Community Garden.
