MLK Community Garden Leaders Meeting -- Feb 25th

Hi Community Garden Leaders,

Looks like the best date and time for the February MLK Community Garden Leaders Meeting isSaturday, February 25th from 3 - 4:30pm. We’ll be at the Learning Center room at the M-Station Apartments, located at 2906 East MLK Blvd (across the street from the future garden). This room is located on the 2nd floor of the leasing office. We’ll carry out the beginning part of the meeting at there, then cross E. MLK Blvd. to take a look at the site of the future garden. As some of you already know, there is poison ivy at the site (though there are paths cleared), so it’s advisable to wear long pants and closed-toed shoes.

No one so far has let me know they are in need of childcare, so I am not currently arranging to provide it, but if you do need childcare, please send me an email to let me know—it’s not too late to recruit a provider.

The goals of this meeting will be:

1) Visit the site of the future garden

2) Take the next steps toward establishing an organizational structure for the leadership team

3) All share ideas about your vision for garden, work on developing shared vision

Please be brainstorming about outreach strategies, what leadership role you might like to play in the planning team (e.g., outreach coordinator, communication coordinator, secretary, meeting facilitator, webmaster, etc.), and your vision for the garden. If you have friends or acquaintances who you think would like to join forces with us to make this garden a reality, please tell them about the project and bring them along to the meeting!

Looking forward to seeing you all there!
