Happy August and Monsoon Season!

We want to thank everyone who attended our first Annual Meeting on Saturday, July 11, 2015. The Board highlighted accomplishments for the past year, presented a fiscal report, responded to questions and reviewed plans for the coming year. For those who were unable to attend, the annual report will soon be available on our web site. In the meantime, get to know your board by checking out the TCC Board of Director biographies - click here.

There's lots of other great information in this email, but also remember to check our website, www.YouCanConquer.org, for new photos, calendar updates and all things good! And also, don't forget to check out the TCC Facebook page!

Have a great August!

TCC Garden News

July has seen the garden provide a bounty of wonderful summer vegetables - tomatoes, squash, and beans, and now the peppers and eggplants are starting to produce!

In August we will begin to prepare our gardens for fall plantings. Thanks to the continuing generosity of Felicia's Farm, we will have one in-ground plot and one raised bed area! We'll be planting our winter greens in the raised bed to make it easier for those with knee or back issues to help with the weeding and harvesting.

Please click here to email Master Gardener Dawn if you would like to help with the TCC Garden.

Mindful Quote of the Month
Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. ~ John Muir
