Gardening with Maggie and Frankie

This hands on, fun training will take place at Annie Mim’s Community Garden North, 255 Maxwell Road, Eugene, Oregon 97404 (Bus #51 or #52) and run in 2 segments – June 10 – July 29 (8 sessions), and August 5 – September 9 (6 sessions). From 10:00-11:30 am every Thursday. Sign up for both of them to go from planting to harvest!

Maggie is an experienced organic gardener/landscaper/horticultural therapist and Frankie is an avid backyard gardener, just beginning his seed to food experience. They invite you to join with them as you work together to prepare the raised garden beds using organic materials including soil, fertilizer, seeds and plant starts, and learn appropriate watering and weeding techniques throughout the season. 

We will be growing and harvesting flowers, herbs and veggies for you to take home and share. Recipes for delicious treats and meals will be offered as well.

You will learn how to build healthy soils from compost, deal with unwanted pests and experience together the joy of being outdoors, planting and watching things you’ve nourished grow, and creating your own fresh foods and beautiful flowers to eat and enjoy.

Seeds, plant starts, fertilizer and tools will be provided… you bring gloves, a hat, water and your smiles and hearts ready to have fun in the garden together!

Let’s get growing!

A standing tradition in Eugene, this group is for high-functioning adults (17 to much older than that) on the Autism/Asperger’s spectrum. All are welcome, no matter where you live. This is a safe place to share with others on the spectrum about things from living on your own to jobs to getting along with folks and so much more. Group members choose the topics, and there are from 12-20 participants each month. Michael is an experienced facilitator who is also a parent of an adult on the spectrum and President of KindTree-Autism Rocks.

KindTree is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting. Join from anywhere.
