What We’ve Been Working On: Final Designs

Volunteers Needed:

Currently, we would like some extra help with making calls to people on our contact list to inform them about our meetings and events. Anyone interested in helping to outreach about this meeting to the contact list, please contact Gloria at gloriabutts@hotmail.com.

Also, we are looking for a Minutes/Secretary person. We would like someone to take notes and post meeting minutes to the listserv, as well as, pass updates along to our P-Patch website and facebook page.


  1. Executive committee formed!
    • Will deal with the details involved in organizing work parties and acquiring the materials necessary for making our garden a reality!
    • Anyone interested in helping find resources (labor and material), making decisions on final details, and organizing the actual work to happen is encouraged to join.
    • We will be meeting more frequently than the larger group and will be staying in a little tighter contact so we can do what needs to get done to make our garden a real place. Please contact Nick to get involved provo.nicholas@gmail.com

Next Steps:

  1. Fundraising!
    • Donations through the P-Patch Trust.
  2. Develop the rest of the open spaces around the reservoir
    • There will be community design meetings for the space this spring/summer. Everyone is encouraged to attend. Check here for updates.
  3. Find our group’s strenghts and resources!
    • Not just what our local business donation opportunities
    • How much labor can we organize from our community?
    • How much must we contract out?
