Dear NSCGA Members
Linda and I would like to thank all of the NSCGA members who have been so supportive during the time that we were president and vice president of the NSCGA. We appreciate and were really touched by the confidence expressed by the many members who wanted us to continue with Linda as president. Those of you who have been in the Association for a number of years, know Linda was president in the early 1990′s and we thought we would retire from the official duties of the Board and just enjoy gardening as civilians.
So many things have been accomplished with the help of so many in our garden community and serving all of you has been rewarding. We hope that more members will consider volunteering. A community garden works best when all the members participate and contribute their talents and time. To name all of the members who have contributed and made the NSCGA the success it is, would require a very long list of past and current members. So, to all of you, thank you. Nothing could have been accomplished without your kind words and deeds.
Our donations of surplus produce from our gardens was hugely successful thanks to Marcia Stein, our outgoing Special Projects coordinator. Our food donations to S.O.M.E. and DASH were received with open arms and grateful hearts. We also maintain a garden plot dedicated to Miriam’s Kitchen and our NSCGA member Elwood Gautier has delivered every week to them during the growing season. Susan Akman, coordinator for the Children’s Program at the NSCGA has done a remarkable job for the toddlers in our community. The parents have expressed their thanks to our garden community and especially to Susan, for continued support for this program.
Our end-of-the-year picnic and Ethnic Food Tasting was fun and delicious beyond all words. You had to be there to experience the wonderful African treats that Yao Afantchao, DC Extension Service Agent, provided for us. Thank you Yao, for all your advice and for being a wonderful addition to our garden community.
