And the Winner is........

Don't worry, we haven't drawn yet, there's still time to get yourself or your organization entered.

We are so very excited about the King Street Community Garden lottery!

There are a few more days to register, the lottery closes at 3 p.m. on Monday, May 23.

click here to jump to registration link at Franklin Rec
or drop by the Franklin Recreation Dept on Emmons Street during business hours.

As of this writing, there are 52 entrants.  Goosebumps. (and to think we were worried that the garden might not fill............well, no problemo, it seems.  You all are just as pumped as we are!)

Out of the 46 raised beds that have been built and filled, we are reserving 4 for the Franklin Food Pantry (more on that later), which leaves 42:  4 will be Easy Access, 8 will be for groups/organizations (faith, scouts, other nonprofits) and 30 for Franklin households/individuals. 

The drawing will be done that evening, Monday May 23rd, at the Franklin Community Garden Committee meeting at which starts at 6:30 pm.  That meeting, as are all of the meetings, will be held at the Franklin Municipal Bldg on West Central Street, Room 205 on the 2nd floor.  Winners do not need to be present, but it would add to the fun (thrill! joy! etc!) if some were.  I am bringing cookies.....

Save the Date:  Saturday, May 28th
Opening Day at the Garden!!!!

yep, we're planning a bit of something.........

Here's a glamour shot from Saturday, May 14th:

The beds are Done!

The garden will soon be fenced and have running water, as well as lovely woodchip paths.

Standing ovation to our outstanding volunteers the past 2 Saturdays who rolled up their sleeves and made this happen. 

We would just be looking at a
pile of lumber and dirt
if it weren't  for All of You. 

Heartfelt Thanks.

until next week.............
