November 2010 Gardening Events & More…

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog posts, since this is November would like to let you know how thankful I am that you have allowed me into your life this year. I enjoy sharing the things that I love; gardening, landscaping, family and friends and you have been generous in allowing me to have this platform to do just that. Over the past year I have tapped into myself even more and now realize that my creativity extends into writing, which is a huge surprise to me. I really love it!

Thank you to all my friends that have encouraged me in this venture (and I hope you know who you are,…yes you) I would also like to thank the many new friends that I have made over the year, your response has been amazing to me. I appreciate your support and hope that I can support you too – I want you to know that I’m here for you this coming year and… into the future. Happy Thanksgiving!

On to events… As always, I want to remind you to shop local, and get the freshest produce around by heading out to the local Farmer’s Markets in Santa Clarita:

Sundays 8:00am – noon
College of The Canyons Parking Lot
Don’t forget to visit my friend Sarah from Worldwide Exotics – she’ll be back in September, so put her on your list and utilize her expertise!
There is also another great Farmer’s Market:
Thursdays in Old Town Newhall from 3-7pm.

In October the Human Relations Forum for the City of Santa Clarita had it’s official kick-off for A Season of Diversity, a program designed to promote cultural understanding in our community.

A Season of Diversity events began in October and will continue until the end of February 2011. All of the events are free of charge and are offered at locations throughout the City. I am including the events for November here, because I think they are informative and important for our community. In addition to the events they are sponsoring a contest, “What does cultural diversity mean to you?” all students are welcome to participate. Write an essay, create a poster, or submit a video that reflects this year’s theme. Application and additional information can be found at: SCV Human Relations Forum.
