Sweet potato planting workshop are Saturday, May 21 at 9 AM, with a rain date of Saturday, May 28 at 9 AM.
Run by Marcia Widmer's dad, Mr. Ever. If you wish to participate, please email Marcia and Todd Widmer and let them know that you plan to attend and how many sweet potato towers each person wants.

Supplies needed for the workshop:
3 tires/tower (Todd and Marcia will procure, but your assistance with rolling them out to the garden would be appreciated)
Sweet potato starts (Todd and Marcia will pick them up)
Sand, to mix with the dirt (About 1 bushel sand/tower - we are still working on procuring the sand. If you can help, please let them know.)
Shovels (we have some at the site)
Trowels, if people want
Buckets for transporting water from the rain barrels to the towers (BYOB)
a shingle or a milkjug with its top cut off to shield the young plants for the first week or so.

If you have questions, you can also contact me (Katherine), but Marcia knows more about this event than I do. Cheers.
