Free cold frame, anyone?

Hi there,We have a real nice, open-able 6ft x 2ft skylight that was removed from our house during a re-roof, so that we can have more room for solar panels.  The double-paned glass and aluminum frame are completely intact, and it even has a crank and removable screen.  We asked the roofers to remove it carefully to save it,…See More

Welcome, Emily. Thanks for joining. I'm in Bryant too, and the more food gardens there are in my neighborhood, the happier I am.

The Edible Garden tour is a very popular event, and always fun and inspiring. I hope one happens again this year. My own garden was on a tour last year, but I'd love to see other gardens next time.

We're an all-volunteer group, so things happen when people decide they want them to happen enough to make them happen! :-) Feel free to initiate any gathering or action that you feel called to.

We hope to see you at our meetings. We've got several gatherings coming up this month, including some potlucks.
