In February 2012, the Lummi
Island Grange voted to sponsor the Gardener's Network which was started
by Master Gardener Ginny Winfield. The Gardener's Network is a group of
people interested in vegetable gardening that meets once a month (on
the second Monday) to discuss and learn about various gardening issues.
The first program (March 12, 2012) will be a seed swap. In April,
Krista Rome, who has been running the Backyard Bean and Grain Project
will be a guest speaker. In May we'll take up the subject of soil
testing in the home garden.
Gardeners Network meetings will be
held at the Grange and are open to all. You don't have to be a gardener
to attend. If you have a desire to garden, would like to make contacts
with people who are gardening, have an interest in sharing garden space
or just want to hear about what's going on in the garden, feel free to
The Lummi Island Grange also intends to develop a series
of skills workshops to include subjects like canning, cheese making,
sewing, and backyard chicken raising. A committee of the Grange will be
meeting soon to brainstorm ideas, recruit workshop leaders and create a
calendar of events. These workshops will be open to anyone. If you have
an idea for a workshop or would like to conduct one contact Randy Smith, at firstname.lastname@example.org .
members are excited that we are going to get back to basics and focus
on the food producing and food saving skills that was the original
motivation for the Grange generations ago.
