Saturday, May 28 from 10-12pm – is a free Workshop and Volunteer Day at the Community Garden (406 S. Heald).  On the last Saturday of every month (through November), you are invited to a workshop and volunteer day. This month’s workshop will be focused on youth. Children will have fun while making the world a greener, more environmentally-friendly place with balls of seeds that are an easy way to grow native wildflowers.  We’ll also be working to keep the garden looking its best by pulling some weeds and planting some seeds. We hope you can join us for this fun and educational event, or just stop by for a visit.  For more info: https://www.facebook.com/events/1703129286597339/.

 

The Southbridge Community Garden has some exciting news to share.  Firstly, we’re starting the season off with a FREE workshop next Saturday, March 26, from 10-12pm, at the community garden (406 S. Heald Street).

 

 

We’re also launching a Pop-up Farmers Market and Youth Farm Stand this year!  These markets will feature organically-grown produce harvested from the Southbridge Community & Youth Gardens.

 

  • The Youth Farm Stand will take place on the last Friday of every month, starting Friday, June 26 from 3-5pm at the Neighborhood House (1218 B Street, Wilmington).  All organic produce will be grown and sold by local Wilmington youth.  In addition, the Farm Stand will feature health educators, cooking demonstrations, community organizations, worm composting demonstrations, live music, and so much more!  You won’t be able to beat the home grown flavors or prices anywhere!  All proceeds support the youth and community garden programs.  Please visit Facebook to learn more:https://www.facebook.com/youthgardenfarmstand.

 

  • The Southbridge Farmers Market will “pop-up” in between monthly Youth Farm Stand days, on Saturdays from 12-2pm, beginning Saturday, June 11th.  The market will be located at the Community Garden (406 S. Heald Street, Wilmington). This market is managed by community members, featuring produce grown by community members, offering organically-grown produce at excellent prices, with all proceeds being returned to the community at the end of the season.

 

It doesn’t get any better!  To learn more or to volunteer to help with the farm stand or pop-up market, please visitwww.facebook.com/SouthbridgeCommunityGarden or reply to this email.

 

All the best,

Grassroots Policy Forum: Building A “Movement of Movements”
Jan 6 @ 9:00 am – 3:30 pm

From UUDAN: “We will be kicking off the new legislative/advocacy year with a Grassroots Policy Forum sponsored by UUDAN. Progress springs from knowledge, and our Forum will include presentations by Kathleen MacRae, Executive Director of the Delaware ACLU, Alan Davis, Chief Magistrate, Delaware Justice of the Peace Court, and Jeffrey Richardson, University of Delaware Professor of Black American Studies. Our speakers will be addressing Justice Reform in the morning and Environmental Justice in the afternoon. Our theme for this forum is Building a “Movement of Movements”. The phrase “Movement of Movements” is from the book Daring Democracy which is one of two Unitarian Universalist Common Reads for 2017-18. This powerful phrase perfectly captures the outpouring of organizational energy which is fueling progress in Delaware. New Grassroots organizations including Network Delaware, Delaware United, and Delaware Women for Inclusion have quickly gathered large followings of committed volunteers who are systematically organizing to bring progressive change to the First State. Established grassroots organizations and non-profits in Delaware are also gaining funding and support. New organizations are emerging which are coalitions of activist groups including the Delaware Civil Rights Coalition, the Racial Justice Collaborative, and the Progressive Action Network. These new organizations are fusing our Movement both thematically and geographically. This forum will celebrate and showcase our grassroots partners—new and established—in panels and discussion groups which will motivate and unify us for the coming year. There is no cost to attend this forum, and a free lunch will be catered by the Olive Tree Café. We are asking for attendees make a reservation at Eventbrite to facilitate planning for this event.”
