LATEST NEWS ABOUT LOVING GARLAND GREEN’S COMMUNITY GARDEN 7TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION FOR APRIL 24TH. - 9AM to 5pm
[RAINCHECK date is Sunday April 25th 1 to 5 pm]
We will require masks at this event.
FROM THE CDC:
“Although COVID-19 vaccines are effective at keeping you from getting sick, scientists are still learning how well vaccines prevent you from spreading the virus that causes COVID-19 to others, even if you do not have symptoms. Early data show the vaccines do help keep people with no symptoms from spreading COVID-19, but we are learning more as more people get vaccinated.
We’re also still learning how long COVID-19 vaccines protect people.
For these reasons, even people who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or who have recovered from COVID-19 should keep taking precautions in public places, until we know more, like wearing a mask, staying 6 feet apart from others, avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces, and washing your hands often.”
We have scheduled this event as a come-and-go event from 9pm to 5pm. We don’t anticipate any more than 30 people (if that) to be present at any one time in the garden and we ask all to social distance at 6 feet or more.
We will have three tables (each well-separated in the garden): One will have free plants. If you are a gardener and have extra seedlings to share, we invite you to bring them to share with others. One table will have literature from the City of Garland and from various Garden clubs in Garland who want to participate. One table will feature bottled water and our guest book.
Below is a photo of the second bed we installed at the garden. Talk about faith: We began installing beds before we even had water at the garden. For the first month we hauled it there in five-gallon buckets from our homes.
