Events & Planning

Hi Neighbor! Glad you stopped by! Facebook has made it really easy to post info on events we plan that we tend to use that platform most. However, this year, we’re trying our darn-ness to keep non-FB users up to date on events and join in the fun, Avondale gardener-neighbor interactions. We host Zoom calls on garden-related topics, in-person-socially-distanced-mask-on activities….

Want in? email AvondaleGardeners@gmail.com for details. Here’s what we’ve got in the hopper for 2021:
