Welcome to this week's GANG News post!

Details of the past week's efforts, how to volunteer, and the current wishlist follow. Enjoy!

GANG Group Volunteer Hour 9.24.09
We were rained out this week. Some usual volunteers used this time to learn more about sustainable gardening and to begin dreaming about next year's crops.

Outside of the Hour
The seventh workshop, "Preserving the Harvest:Canning, Drying, and Fermentation," will take place on Saturday, September 26. A few spots are still available, so send an email to if you would like to join. Follow this link for more details on the workshop.

Why & How to Volunteer
We invite all neighbors to join us at the GANG. By volunteering you can earn shares of the gardens bounty; shares earned are based on volunteer hours. There is a weekly group volunteer hour Thursdays from 5:30pm-6:30pm, but you are welcome to volunteer anytime. There is volunteer log we use to track volunteer hours and what work was done during your time. The volunteer log (white binder) is located on Ann's porch, 134 N. Overhill.
