I continue to enjoy wonderful organic veggies thanks to my CSA with Coosa Fancy Farms. It is exciting to see what this week’s offerings are and pair with some grilling meats.
I spent this past cool Memorial Day weekend in my own garden. I have such an invasive plant issue and have been able to handle them in the past with layers of cardboard and mulch. However, my supply of cardboard has dwindled. I only use the brown cardboard, not the shiny coated since that can contain chemicals and heavy metals.
I could use arborist mulch instead, but haven’t found a good and affordable source for the quantity I need. But after years of battling chemical free I am getting a better handle on them…mowing my neighbor’s lawn between her house and my garden has helped a lot, as well. It is too difficult for her to do safely so me mowing benefits us both.
I know that I mention the Equality Volunteer Fire Department (EVFD) every week, but I do so for the simple reason that they are absolutely needed by our community. Tomorrow, June 3, is the EVFD First Saturday fundraising event from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
If you can, please consider donating a baked good for the bake sale. Volunteers are welcome to help with all the activities. Otherwise please come and purchase something, or donate, and fellowship with the folks that keep our community safe.
Also, everyone is welcome to attend their first and third Monday training meetings, even if only to just watch the firefighters do their training.
The Boston butt and rib sale was a hit and sold more than 363 tickets. This successful fundraiser will go a long way to helping our volunteer fire department; thank you to all those that supported.
Equality Performing Arts Center (EPAC) had a wonderful performance by Randall Edwards, the proprietor of Pokana Talahacci “Old Peachtree Town” Music in Clanton, last week with bluegrass and gospel music.
The next EPAC event is Open Mic Night next Friday, June 9. While it is not mandatory, you are encouraged to bring a dish of shareable food for our “potluck,” and if you can afford to drop something into the donation jar for the music, it helps keep the lights on. The EPAC provides free coffee, iced tea, water, and fresh-popped popcorn.
I depend upon my readers to share with me what is happening within your organizations, churches, neighborhoods, groups, or family to share in next week’s column. Please contact me; call or text 256-531-6460 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
