Thank You, Thank You, Thank You

Spring is in the air---but it sure feels like Thanksgiving!
Taking a moment to acknowledge all the wonderful things taking root around us:

Thank You, Town.
For supporting us, and for making it possible.

Thank You, Jeff Nutting.
For taking us seriously and opening doors (or should that be gates?)

Thank You, Steering Committee.
For your hopes and dreams.
For late night meetings, emails, and phone calls. 
For writing, creating, designing, coordinating, and networking.

Thank You, Community of Friends.
For spreading the word and digging in your pocket.
For supporting community gardens and sharing your strength.
For helping us plant way more than just a garden.

We are all so very Thankful.
