Fans and Friends,
What a great way to welcome spring and start the growing season!  March 20th, our first Tuesday evening work party, was a beautiful Oregon day, full of rain and fun; perfect for gardening!
Lower row of SAGE garlic unhappy with all the water we've had this March!
A great big "Thank You" to all the wonderful people (Paige, Bryan, Brian and John) who came out and braved the precipitation for our first Tuesday work party of the year.  We even had some friendly ducks swim by and help us (you can see from the photo that we're not joking when we say that the ducks could literally swim by us!)
After spreading a whole pile of mulch (about 6 yards worth!) and weeding the garlic beds that weren't underwater, we concluded the evening with an excellent pizza dinner.  On site we have a cob pizza oven that quickly cooked our pizzas that were topped with fresh kale from the garden.  The dough was generously donated by Fireworks, the restaurant located directly south of the south co-op.

Fire roasted pizza will frequently be featured after Tuesday evening work parties.  Volunteer throughout the year and enjoy the seasonal diversity of toppings we'll feature from the garden. 
As an open invitation to all of our friends, family and neighbors we will be holding open volunteer evenings at SAGE until November. We'll meet every Tuesday at 4pm and work until dusk (saving some of that daylight for eating fire roasted pizza!). 
Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join us in the garden (rain or shine)!  

See you all soon!
