August 14 Workday Minutes – Taken by Ann Levine

David Kaplan called the meeting to order–after an early hour of peach picking.

Announcements

The Columbus-Amsterdam BID is holding a Street Fair on Sundays Sept. 8 and 15, on Amsterdam between 106 and 110 Streets, from 12 to 4. The Garden would like to reserve a table, but we need both volunteers to man the booth and ideas for display projects.
The July 14 Flea Market brought in $590! Special thanks to Julia, Christine, and Jesus. The next flea market has been rescheduled for Saturday, October 5. Donations and volunteers requested.

From the members

Ideas for street fair: Supplies for children to draw their ideal garden; bake sale.

We’re in mosquito season. Water barrels must be covered at all times. Watering cans should be emptied and turned upside down after use.

Members must NOT give the lock combinations to non-members for any reason.

Fence in the southeastern corner of the East garden has collapsed. Must be repaired.

Tasks completed

Members cut down a volunteer tree just outside the fence in the East Garden; bagged mulch for future use (though much remains in the pile); sanded the floor of the gazebo, in preparation for painting; and weeded.
