Labor of Love Gardening Day and Potluck BBQ

Hey there gardeners!

Spring and Summer have been good to us here at Ye Olde Haunted Mansion and we want to hit Autumn at a dead run. So we're going to have a little gardening day next Saturday.

We'll start at 10:00am by doing some long neglected weeding and clearing out of some spaces that we would like to use to put some new things in the ground and give some other things some much needed breathing room. We have tools and materials, but bring a good pair of gloves if you've got them. There is also some empty space in bins that we can rehab and put in some new seeds for Autumn. Some light construction of new beds or trellises may also be in order. Snacks and bloody marys for the brave will be provided.

If anyone has a pick up truck, we would also like to get a fresh load of soil to distribute around the place. There is a good spot in Whittier with organic soil on the cheap, we just need a vehicle to be able to get it to our place. We would make a quick little trip to do this first thing while the other folks get started at ground level. The loading process involves a front loader at the soil place, but generally the duty is light on one's vehicle. I just want to make sure that no one's immaculate truck comes away in any less a condition that it arrived in. If we can hook this up, I'll need a strong back to help me move the soil to the yard. This has been a long delayed priority that has kept us from making the most of our space here. Extra bloody marys for anyone willing to help in this regard.

We'll conclude the day with a little potluck BBQ action on the front porch and then anyone who wants to stay for the Druid Film Festival will be admitted for free. It's a great evening of cult and ephemeral film by friends of the HM. We have showers available if anyone wants to freshen up before evening.

Feel free to spread the word and bring a friend. All are welcome. Really looking forward to a good day outdoors and some honest soil under my fingernails.
