Linen-like napkins come in three designs -- white with a sparkling silver tree, white with a sparkling gold tree, and a brown napkin with pine and bow trim.

LEGACY BRICKS. Once again, we are offering the Legacy Bricks at half-price ($50) from November 26 to December 21, 2012. The Legacy Bricks have been a wonderful way to not only support the CCDS Community Garden, but also honor or recognize family, friends, businesses, or events. These bricks line the paths among the plant beds and are a favorite element for garden visitors? The brick sales continue through the year at $100 per brick, but the half-price sale is only for a limited time! [ORDER FORM]
JUNE LOOKS GROOVY [06/12]
On the heels of the success of the first-ever CCDS Charity Golf Tournament in May, the community has been invited to fun in the garden in a June event for the whole family! It's Groovy Garden Day on Saturday, June 23 around our community garden at 1249 Eisenhower Drive.
The family-styled event runs from 9AM until 3PM and will have:
- craft vendors (jewelry, woodworking, pottery, dog treats),
- demonstrations (making raised beds, container gardening, composting),
- activities for children (storyteller, face painting, games), and
- food (Leopold's Ice Cream, The Peanut Man's boiled peanuts, Quantum Catering).
The event is free to attend but there will also be terrific items for purchase from the vendors. It is an outside event, but in case of rain, the event will be held in the gym.
Thank you for joining us in the journey!
