Salon Group Revival Meeting

"Salon" is an informal complementary forum to the Riley Park Community Garden.  We discuss relevant topics and are open to ideas, participation and input.  To date, we have had several salons over the last year and a half.  Please join us at the Fieldhouse, where tea, snacks and thoughtful discussion will be supplied.

During the session, we will be putting together a list of ideas for future chats at our salon meetings.  We hope to share stores from you all from the first year to help create an evolving Riley Park Community Garden Story Book.

Whether you have a yard or a balcony, come learn with us!
