You may or may not know that there is an area on our Virginia Key campus dedicated to a garden. It is about time this are makes the jump from a secret garden to a RSMAS garden. Recently, MPO's very own Teddy Allen took it upon himself to prepare the garden with some soil and a little elbow grease. Now, comes the next step. As a growing season fast approaches, it is time for planting. However, there is no funding designated for this garden so the financial backing for these plants and fertilizer will need to be generated by the people. The first attempt at raising some money will be a good old-fashioned bake sale held next Thursday, October 4, from 11:30am-1:30pm. This email is a request for RSMAS members to contact either myself or Sandrine to contribute some baked goods for the sale. If you cannot bake then no worries, bought bakery treats are definitely still appreciated. Also, there will be a box for contributions if you do not like eating desserts or making desserts. A flyer is attached with more details and the RSMAS garden blog entry is here.
Please email Sandrine and me with any questions or concerns. Thanks and see you next Thursday!
