Apprentice Waitlist Lottery

At the meeting we had our annual apprentice waitlist lottery.


Compost, Common Area and Event Action Groups 

The bulk of the meeting had the membership present break up into three different focus groups, Compost, Common Areas and Events.  

The Compost group (Cara, Sarah, Pete, Greg, Charlie, Naciem) talked about our continuing community composting project - the design and materials of the new bins, and the workday timeline

The Common Area group (Deema, Lorne, Cody, Frank, Gina, Pat, Mark, Judy, Carolyn, Alice, Val, Michael, Joe, John) brainstormed  potential ways to develop the common areas 

The Events group (Stephanie, Suzanne, Roma, Jennifer, Emerson, Yodit, Cassandra, Tony, Alana, Hannah, Ruth) worked out some plans for events in the garden this summer - a movie night, the Triple Threat, a Halloween event, a winter fundraiser, and a gardener cocktail party.
