GREEN POWER GARDEN BEGINS THE 2016 SEASON

 

 THANK YOU!

 ·         Everyone who has started sweet potatoes and seeds for Green Power

 ·         Volunteer Groups who have scheduled time to work in the garden

 ·         Everyone who has shared our link and ordered from the fundraiser

There is still time for growing, scheduling, and ordering and sharing.

Please continue to start plants indoors for the garden.  Contact us if you need seeds. 

 Eggplant, peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts cabbage, kale and swiss chard can be planted indoors now.  

 These seeds can be planted in early May. 

Summer and winter squashes, melons, pumpkins and cucumbers

 Please stay tuned for the date(s) that plants can be given to the garden.  Depending on the weather and ground, we will be looking to plant in the later part of May. 

 To schedule a date for your group, GROUPS:  out our facebook calendar or contact Molly Llanas.  

 If you have trouble viewing the calendar – try using internet explorer. 

 A special thank you and shout out to Waukesha County Dept. of Health and Human Services    

For designating Green Power as the recipient of funds donated for their April casual day. 

 We are hoping for big things from our small garden this year.  Help us surpass 5,000 lbs of food to combat food insecurity and help those in need.  Our garden is supported solely by volunteers and donations from our community.   Cash donations are needed for the port-a-potty rental and other garden expenses. 

 Please let us know if your company would like to sponsor a fund raiser to support Green Power Garden.  

  The Garden is located in Southeast Waukesha County: S46W22996 Lawnsdale Road.

 The garden is found just off CTH"I" and Milkyway Road in the Town of Waukesha

 DONATIONS ARE WELCOME

In addition to volunteering, the garden is always in need of new or used garden supplies such as hand and power tools, stakes for tomato plants and old bed sheets used for tying plants.  We are happy to take your old blue recycling bins.  Cash donations to support the port-a-potty rental and other garden needs are greatly appreciated.  Please contact us if you have anything we might be able to use.
