Updating the Oakmont Plant Care Co-Op

Hi Oakmont, the Oakmont Plant Care Co-Op list is being updated–to ensure current contact information is correct and to welcome new members.

The Co-Op is a free service– members simply help each other. If a member has to be away from home and needs plant care (usually watering) then a nearby member is contacted. The members arrange a meeting with each other and plant care is worked out. It’s that simple. No hours or point systems are involved as in some other co-ops. It’s really just neighbors contacting each other when plant care is needed, then reciprocating, if they are available when called.
Note–plant care is not intended for watering big landscape areas.

Co-op Founders, Shirley and Bob Phillips, coordinate the list, create a membership spread sheet and create a map that shows rough location of members. To join or update your information, please email: plantcare100@yahoo.com In the subject line, please put your name and “want to join” or “want to update.” For example: Jane Doe–Want to Join. Please do not contact Bob or Shirley by phone.

So consider joining. It’s a great way to get your plants watered and getting to know nearby neighbors.

Today we remember the day that shocked and shook the world with a painful look back. This is also a time to look ahead at how to mitigate lingering negative responses. Living in constant concern, anxiety and fear robs the good from each day. Deep breathing and reading comics may be ways to cope. Talking to a positive person might be another. And still a third: exercise.
