Next Meeting: TAProots is on

Holly Springs Food Cupboard Community Garden
621 West Holly Springs Road
Holly Springs, NC 27540
TAProots is a small group of clients affiliated with the Triangle Aphasia Project who meet regularly to sow seeds, garden, create garden crafts and fellowship together with a combined purpose to share their enjoyment of gardening and the outdoors. Although the group has a focus on gardening and garden projects, no prior hands-on gardening experience is needed.
The group spends time learning from each other, patiently working to communicate in a safe and caring environment while doing
fun and useful projects to use at home or provide to the community. The group routinely plants the seeds that start the vegetables in the community garden at the Holly Springs Food Cupboard. They also collect seeds for future plantings in the garden. Each year they organize and conduct a plant sale to support their efforts and to work toward their goal of their group's financial self-sufficiency!
Hands-on opportunities include learning to propagate plants for the Community Garden and the plant sale as well as the home garden and clients are encouraged to take plants home if they wish. The group also uses the herbs and plants from the community garden to create tastings or to take home for culinary purposes!
Join us. We welcome new members!

An Unofficial Meeting Between Friends
Our group got together today at the Holly Springs Community Garden, after a long hiatus, just to catch up, have a little chat and to create some colorful containers for the Food Cupboard's Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to dedicate the new addition next week.
It was great to see everyone, to check in and to find out how everyone's summer has been. Jerry was interested to hear about successes in home gardens and he gave us an update on the community garden. We had a snack and set to work on the containers.
We planted three large showy planters and stuffed them full of mums, Saint Johns Wort and Verbena. Then we filled in with lots of pansies. We also filled lots of other pots with colorful pansies.
It was a beautiful morning to be in the garden. The only thing missing was Rieppe.
