TOMATO TASTING AT SUNSHINE COMMUNITY GARDENS
SATURDAY, JUNE 9th
The newly elected directors of Sunshine Community Gardens will be introduced.
There will be no formal All Gardeners Meeting this Saturday. The scheduled vote on the site rules and by-laws updates has been postponed.
Shortly after 11:00 AM
An informal tomato discussion will be held, lead by Randy Thompson. Every fall, Randy asks gardeners to send back ratings of the tomato varieties they planted and uses the information to make the tomato seed orders for the spring plant sale.
About 12:00 noon
The Tomato Tasting will begin. Gardeners are invited to bring several of their favorite tomatoes that they would like to share. If you can bring tomatoes for the tasting, please let Ila Falvey (Ila.firstname.lastname@example.org) know what kind you plan to bring.
After the Tomato Tasting
Following the tasting, there will be a potluck, if you choose to join in and bring a dish.
A caprese salad with bread and drinks will be provided.
AND MORE! There will be music and prizes!
NO ALL GARDENERS MEETING THIS SATURDAY
The All Gardeners Meeting that had been schedule for Saturday, June 9, has been postponed until later this summer. Voting by the gardeners on proposed changes to the By-Laws and Site Rules has also been postponed -- so we can have more time to enjoy the Tomato Tasting.
Seventy-eight gardeners voted in the elections last week.
The new Directors are:

WORKDAY - SATURDAY, JUNE 9, 9:00-11:00 AM
June 30 is the deadline for completing and logging Spring season Service Hours.
There are many maintenance tasks around the garden that need to be done. Mowing, pulling weeds, picking up trash, cleaning up the tool shed, just to name a few. Work on the pathways between blocks of plots, for example between B1 and C1 or between C6 and C7, can be counted toward service hours. (Yes, yes, plot blocks B and C are long gone, but I didn't want to point to an actual path as the example.) And the Micah 6 garden needs more volunteers, see below.
Please make it easier for us to tally up your hours, and log them online in the Virtual Green Binder.
MICAH 6 - MORE HELP IS NEEDED
We still need volunteers to help with the Micah 6 Garden.
We need people to help harvest on Thursday and Saturday mornings.
Volunteers are also needed to drop off food at the Micah 6 pantry on Saturday mornings. This would be a once a month commitment. The University Presbyterian Church, where the pantry is located, is only an 8 minute drive from Sunshine.
