Water update

Sarah Hutt
 

To all
This message is from Alex of the Trustees after he was called this morning about a crack in the water spigot underground was found.  

As a result the water was turned off to dig and find the problem.  The piece needed for repair has to be ordered so we won’t have water until Tuesday morning at the earliest.

So sorry about this situation.  Once the water is turned back on we will also be back on the timer.  

Water will go on at 5AM and off at 8PM.

Thanks - 
Sarah

Bird Watching Tour

Sarah Hutt
 

Greetings, gardeners!

We've set the date for the inaugural  Berkeley Community Garden guided bird walks: 
  • The walks will be held on Saturday, May 29, at 8:30 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. and will last for one hour.

  • Please RSVP to info@... and tell us which session you'd like to attend. 

  • Due to space constraints in the garden, we want to limit the number of participants in each session to ~10 people. If we have more interest, we will add more sessions that day or on later dates.
If you're in the garden, keep an eye out for a pair of Black Capped Chickadees - you'll see them near the Honey Locust on the Tremont side of the garden. You may also spot a new visitor, a Hermit Thrush, foraging on the ground, hopping around looking for insects. Learn more about these birds here:
Happy gardening and birding,
Sari 

問候,園丁!
我們已經確定了伯克利社區花園首個鳥類漫步的日期:該漫步將於5月29日星期六上午8:30和上午10:00舉行,並將持續一小時。

請回復至info@...,並告訴我們您要參加哪個會議。

由於花園的空間限制,我們希望將每節會議的參與者人數限制為10人左右。 如果我們有興趣,我們會在當天或以後的日期增加更多的會話。如果您在花園裡,請留意一對黑頂山雀-您會在Tremont的Honey蝗蟲附近看到它們。 花園的一面。 您可能還會發現一個新的訪客,隱士鵝口瘡,在地上覓食,四處尋找昆蟲。 在此處了解有關這些鳥類的更多信息:

快樂的園藝和觀鳥,莎麗

Water UPDATE

Berkeley Gardeners,
Our plumbing team is working to repair and replace damaged water spigots as result of recent vandalism. 

They hope to have the water on in the garden by the end of this week 4/25. 

Certain spigots will not be accessible for another week or two after that, as we work toward installing new fixtures. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
