Happy New Year from CGC!

The winter break has served its purpose for us here at CGC. The coordinators are feeling rested and ready to get going again for a busy spring season with some new gardens on the way! As the New Year gets started we are excited to welcome a new coordinator to our team: Maisie Rinne! Maisie brings to our staff a wealth of experience that will be instrumental in establishing our new gardens this year.

We are also reluctant to admit that we will be losing Anna Cynar as she moves on with her teaching career. We will greatly miss Anna’s incredible contributions to CGC, and wish her the best of luck with her next career step!

So, what will we be doing this winter? We have a lot of plans! We are looking forward to meeting with our new garden partners and assisting them with planning their new gardens. During this process of planning (and eventually implementation!) people from all of our garden sites will be participating in a series of workshops to learn more about how to nurture a successful garden. Finally, as winter shifts to spring, we are looking forward to the day when we can get that first truck load of soil and begin planting again!

Stay tuned as we will keep you updated on our progress!
