How does your Garden grow?

As a kid did you always like to play in the dirt? Got some time on your hands these days now that you’re retired? Or maybe you’re working remotely from home and get to take computer breaks from time to time? Beginning Thursday Morning, May 12 at 9am clearing and planting of the garden commences. You are welcome to come volunteer to tend the garden each Thursday weather permitting.

May 21st will be a Spring Garden Open House from 10-1. We will be giving away seedlings, (on per adult) as well as making topiary seed gardens with children 6 and up to take home.

Save the evening of June 1st for our Annual Meeting. We NEED you to attend and give input as to what FOB does in the coming year. Details TBA.

Update on Sugaring Program Due to Weather

Okay folks…here’s the scoop! Due to the yukky weather, there will be no formal programing (sorry!) as it was to be all outdoors, but Sugarmaker Pete is firing up the evaporator and WILL be finishing the last boil of the season and you’re welcome to stop by. Those members who reserved syrup can go to the FOB tent near the sugar shack and pick it up from Gail from 10-11:30am. As to those who are hoping to get a bottle of Brooksvale’s own Maple Syrup, it is one per household while supplies last for an $8 donation. Cash only please! Thank you as always for your support and in this case your understanding as well.
