The Best Part of Summer
Let’s be real. Summertime is all about not being winter, not being in school, and not being controlled by an alarm clock.
In the Garden, Summertime is about collecting up the last of the spring harvest and preparing for the fall season. So even though we’re taking time to put our toes in the sand, we’re still collaborating and creating in this space of exploration and growth.
July is busy! We’re out enjoying the weather, traveling again, and seeing people we haven’t seen in a while so live Garden events are being rescheduled to accommodate our hosts and their summer plans. Please visit Events in the Garden Menu, or inside the specific Circle or Course.
Please note — event links take you ‘inside the Garden’ or to the Garden Gate to join the Garden. It just takes a minute! And — this space is for the Ladies Only! Gentlemen, please pass along this newsletter to the creative women in your life! 🙏

Poetry Book Club is planning to meet on Wednesday, August 3rd. If you’ve joined the Book Club Circle you’ll see announcements for Poetry Book Club gatherings here too.
Office and Happy Hours is also changing to a couple of gatherings a month, we’re working on a schedule we hope will provide the opportunity for more members to join us.
Evening silent and prompt writing spaces are occasionally non-hosted and open for those who find the accountability and time helpful to work on their writing projects.
