Sad, but true. The Rocky River Community Garden is now closed for the winter. But it will be time to sign up for next year's season soon enough. Check back here in January 2016 for sign-up info.
Please join us for the 2015 Rocky River Community Garden Harvest Celebration on Friday, October 16, from 6:30-9:30pm, at Elmwood Cabin.
Family members are welcome to this event and we do need an RSVP by email with how many are attending so we can plan properly.
If children are coming please let Teresa know so we can be ready for them!
RSVP’s should go to Teresa at firstname.lastname@example.org
There is an overnight event at Elmwood later in the evening, so we will have to be out by 9:30pm or so, but we will not have to take down tables and chairs!
Bring a dish that celebrates your harvest. The Garden Committee will provide the beverages, paper products, music, and hopefully, a warm fire.Row A: Please provide a dessert.
Row B: Please provide a soup, stew or chili.
Row C: Please provide a snack, side, or appetizer.
We have some prizes to raffle off: gift certificates to Blackbird Bakery, Piada Itialian Street Food and a surprise! Each attendee receives one ticket. Additional tickets available for $1 each.
