Good and Green

It's so green out there, there is no filter on any of these photos and the green is almost neon! What a perfect spring we are having after a lovely, wet winter.

Earth Day is Saturday, come celebrate our beautiful community and give Eastwood Park a spring clean! Looking ahead, Rhubarb Review tickets are on SALE now! Grab your seats and make your plans for some wonderful, local entertainment in May!

We hope you enjoy this beautiful weather all weekend long and come down and grab some compost for your garden projects.
Happy Earth Day Weekend!
Earth Day at Eastwood Park - TOMORROW!
April 22nd

Join us for a beautiful day at the park with friends and neighbors! We will have a list of jobs to help freshen up Eastwood Park.

Coffee, bagels, donuts and snacks will get us going then a picnic lunch will be served when we are all done with the work day!

Bring your own gloves! We'll have all the other tools needed for the clean up.

Reach out to Camille, our Events Coordinator, at events@tamcsd.org with questions or to sign up to help! 
TCSD Board Work Session
April 26th
Tam Valley Community Center

The Board will conduct a study session regarding the draft Five-Year Operating Budget Forecasts and preliminary operating budget formats and estimates for Wastewater, Solid Waste, and Parks & Recreation operations. The purpose of the Five -Year Operating Budget Forecasts is to project cost and revenue sources over the next five-year period. This allows the Board to better evaluate the on-going impacts of new programs, the availability of surplus revenue for capital projects, projected increases in wastewater treatment costs, and impacts of various inflationary assumptions.

Our First PARC Meeting
April 25th

The Board recently appointed all five members to the newly formed Parks and Recreation Commission (PARC). The agenda for the inaugural meeting of PARC will primarily focus on an orientation for the five new PARC members, but we do encourage the community to attend to meet the Commissioners.

Community Compost Delivery!

Our spring compost delivery is here! West Marin Compost dropped off a huge load of Nicasio Blend compost this morning. We will use a nice chunk of it on the Eastwood Park clean up but there is a huge pile for the community to use. Please come get some compost to amend your soil and prepare for spring planting. The sun is shining and the plants will be so happy in this high quality compost.

Local residents only and no commercial use, please. Take what you need and save some for your neighbors. Compost is meant as a small layer on top of high quality soil vs planting directly in this compost mix.

Thank you!
