Dear DOT Garden Friends,
What would spring in Albuquerque be without sunshine, wind, and plummeting nighttime temps? If you’re struggling with the ups and downs of the season, you’re not alone. Luckily, May is on its way and we’ll soon find a steady climb to summer’s heat and bounty. If you’re itchin’ to get summer plants in the ground, be sure to provide them with protection as these next few weeks may still be tumultuous for such sun loving babies.
Also, our annual Plant Sale & Local Garden Fest is just two weeks away! Join us on April 27th from 10am-2pm – you’ll find an assortment of desert-adapted veggies, herbs, and flowers. We’ll also be joined by Rio Grande High School, Lavaland Elementary and local artisans, community organizations, and food vendors. This is our primary fundraiser for the garden and your support helps our program grow! Interested in volunteering for the event? Contact Tiana Baca for more info.
Looking forward to see you all on the 27th!
--The DOTG crew
