76 backers pledged $3,330 to help bring this project to life.

Lancaster Community Gardens Party!

First, we'd like to thank you all once again for the help funding the fence. We completed the fence several weeks ago, and so far it's done the job! 

The gardens look great--even with the heat. 

But we have a continuing problem: there's no water on site, so plot-holders have been hauling water (driving it in) to the gardens--a huge amount of work and needless use of gas--and borrowing from a neighbor's hose.

We're raising money to pay for a well, and expect it to cost somewhere north of $3,000. Once complete, the gardens will be largely self-sustaining. 

Join us Thursday August 9th at 7:30 at the Elk's Club in Lancaster to celebrate the gardens and help raise money to drill the well.

Performing that night will be Leo from Vinegar Creek, Shawn Gallagher from Modern Day Pharoahs, gil Smart from the Lancaster Sunday News, The Scarlett Furies (on tour from LA), and yours truly for a few minutes. 

Tickets are $10 at the door--we'd love to see you there!

Purchase tickets here: and please forward this email to friends who love music (and gardens)!

Thank you!
