First BIG gathering at the garden!!!

Joan Cronk is writing an article on Community Gardens for her LIFESTYLES article in the Puyallup Herald. Colleen Carroll, the photographer for the paper, came out to the garden on Thursday, May 29th to take gets some photos. She took alot of pictures of DIRT!We had a great turn out of people for the photo op. Thanks to all that came:Steve and Jonathan Bjerk, Dolly and Melody Smith, Holly Spaulding, Nicole Martini, Norma Laughlin, Jo Anne Slaybaugh, Clyde and Murphy (our Lhasa Apso) and new gardeners Igor Veremeykin and his wife and daughter. It was so great to look around and see everyone! It is amazing how far we have come in such a short time with the garden! Just think in February I was just meeting with the Puyallup Parks and Recs to speak about getting Community Garden established (again).Steering Committee~ Thank you everyone for making the Puyallup Community Garden possible. It could not be done without your vission and hard work!We have only just begun to make the Brown Property a truly fantastic place for the community to come to.
