The Bandon Garden Work Party

Our Garden Work Party on June 7th was a complete success! We weeded, we wood-chipped the entire Garden, we made a pathway from the 8th Street gate, we hauled tree branches street side for city pick-up, and the lawn was mowed and areas weed-whacked . . . . Whew! And the Garden looks gorgeous. Thanks to all our Volunteers – your help was appreciated from the food donations to the physical labor and your valuable time. See more pictures in the Bandon Photo Gallery.

Work Party 4

Good Earth Garden, located on City Property at the end of 8th Court, will accept applications for the 2017 growing season starting February. The Garden has 41 raised beds at the cost of $10 , plus a $10 membership fee. This covers insurance for the 4X12 foot plot, tools, fertilizer, water, some seeds, and education opportunities to help you grow your own organic vegetables, and flowers.

The Garden Series continues with Jennifer Ewing. Monthly workshops are available FREE to the public.

Jennifer Ewing’s Garden Series at Bandon Garden

At Bandon’s Good Earth Garden August 12, 10-1130 am- Curbside at the Community Garden, Jennifer Ewing will be teaching Compost: Yardwaste, worms.

When you get a garden bed, don’t forget that orientation is mandatory to be able to use the garden. Our Greenhouse is up and operational and we have many flats of seedlings started. We will be nurturing them for the weeks to come in preparation for our plant sale. Any healthy houseplants, divided perennials, and other donations are well received, and benefit the gardeners directly. We provide the plots, fertilizer, water, and tools for gardeners to use throughout the year. All donations are welcome.
We are always looking for people to engage in our organization. We are a fun board who love to garden and serve the community by providing education and garden experience.
Bandon Good Earth Community Garden strives to increase public health and awareness through education and gardening experience. The locations for Jennifer Ewing’s classes for the Garden is as follows:
Bandon Youth Center- BYC is located at 101 11th St. SW
The Community Garden is located at the west end of 8th Ct.

Consider joining the monthly meetings on the first Wednesday of the month, at 6:30 pm at the Bandon Community Youth Center–101 11th St. SW

Thank you in advance and look forward to seeing you in the garden, and at many of our coordinated gardening activities.
