We are a group of volunteer coordinators who meet regularly to discuss what needs to be done and how we’ll do it. The current coordinators include: Stephanie and Elysha, Meagen, Kate and Uma (Jocelyn).
Tony is our tour guide and salsa master.
Dan is our e-mail wizard.
Debbie is our website administrator.
The mutual vision continues to be to create a vibrant space that people (especially the neighborhood) enjoy; that includes a small living eco system, incorporates permaculture principles, grows food, demonstrates “back yard” sustainability, is educational, creative and aesthetically pleasing. The ideal is that this process remains grassroots, and shared by neighbors and friends. It could grow and continue to be operated as a “farm”…where produce is grown by the farmers/gardeners and sold/traded to the neighborhood – or perhaps it will someday be a “community garden.” Gather ‘round started in 2006, as an asphalt parking lot. It now includes raised beds for veggies, berry shrubs, an herb garden, edible “weeds”area, salsa garden, flowers, chickens and rain water management. We are moving towards growing more edible perennial crops (fruit trees & shrubs, and plants)
Part of our our approach to community interaction is to strive to engage in dialogues that are respectful, direct and honest in nature. We appreciate all the positive support and expression shared of your knowledge of Gather ‘round! We’ll continue to focus on accomplishing the mission and goals, and encouraging uplifting energy in the space, and around it. It’s a garden transforming. There’s veggies, flowers, children learning, people sharing, chickens entertaining, green things growing, nature and earth breathing life. We invite you to do the same, and enjoy the coming season’s surprises and colors!
