Our Cordata Community Garden needs a new Garden Coordinator, 4-6 hours per week through the growing season (until Oct. 31). The volunteer will have a 4'x16' garden bed at no charge. The Volunteer Coordinator will work with gardeners to schedule the work that needs to be done and to generally oversee work parties, tools and supplies. Alice Bell and the garden committee will be on hand to train and help the volunteer coordinator. If you are interested, please call Alice Bell at (360) 220-8955. You will be glad you joined us.
As of this June edition of the Newsletter, Alice Bell continues as the garden coordinator through September 30th. Fred Meyer Store donated four new hoses for the garden, worth $200. Our thanks to Joanna O'Connell for arranging the donation.
When you walk by the Cordata Community Garden, notice our shed with white trim. This was donated and built by the Building Industries of Whatcom County. Our gardener, Chris Calverley was the successful liaison.

In May, 2018, Police Chief David Doll gave an update about bike theft prevention. Register your bike with the city including its serial number and consider some other mark of your own. One of the best locks is the type in the shape of a “U.”
