First Meeting!!!

The first meeting of the Frederick Community Gardeners came to order at the community room in the C. Burr Artz Public Library on February 12, 2009. This meeting was made possible through the leadership and vision of Karen Buchsbaum who did a fabulous job of creating a focused and productive meeting agenda. We started off the meeting by going around the room and introducing ourselves, providing some basic information about who we are and why community gardening is important to us. Minutes from our meeting were recorded by Eli and an abbreviated version of our meeting agenda can be seen below:

I. What is a community garden?
II. Steps for creating a community garden
III. Create a vision, mission statement
IV. Group share:
V. Committees

Action Items:
- Send Karen your name, contact info, committee
- Contact Karen if you would like to host some seedlings in your home
- Please forward any photos of possible sites to Anna & Karen
