- Prep Your Body- Start going to bed a little earlier the next few days to slowly adjust to the time change. Your body will handle the time change better in smaller increments.
- Get Excited- Have a positive mentality regarding the upcoming time change. Day light savings happens twice a year, so you know it is coming. Think of all the things you can do with more day light? Longer evening hikes, getting out of work with light still outside, waking up to some sun. Get yourself excited to enjoy the challenge of springing forward this year.
- Change Clocks- Make sure that you write a note to change your clocks. You don’t want to be late to a meeting, class, a party or church because you are an hour late. Make a note now to remind you to change your clocks.
Garden Boxes at The Village for you to use this summer!
The Village offers many amenities to cater to our wonderful residents. No matter what your extra wants or needs are, The Village wants to keep you covered. This week, we want to spotlight one of our favorite extras here at The Village, which is our Community Garden Boxes. Tenants can rent a plot each Spring/Summer season and grow all the fruits and vegetables they would like. We have 16 plots that can be rented each year. All you need to do is come in to our office and we will help you out. It costs $20 to rent half a box for the whole summer or $40 to rent the entire box for the whole summer.
Now for some tips to make that plot of land really come to life. If you are planning on planting from seed, it is almost the perfect time to plant. The best time is in April and right after the last frost of the season. April is a great month to plant lots of different things: beans, beets, cabbage, carrots, corn, cucumbers, herbs, lettuce, melons, onions, peas, peppers, summer squash, and tomatoes. May is still a great time to plant because it is not too late and a little warmer. Start planning now, because by June it might be too late in the season to plant as many things. If you are planting seeds, using a seed starter will give you the best results, or just go to a local nursery and get your plant of choice already started. If you want to find some great items to plant or need some tips, head over to Paradise Nursery in Rexburg!
Just knowing that you grew the food that you are eating can be really exciting. No matter what you are growing though, make sure that you clean it before eating. We are excited for you here at The Village to conquer this exciting adventure of growing your own food in our garden boxes. Come in and talk to us today about renting a plot this season.

Day light savings is right around the corner, as in this Sunday, March 13th! Are you ready to spring forward into Spring? A little more sunshine during the day will take away the winter blues. We know that remembering which way to move your clock can be confusing, so just remember that in the spring you spring forward, while in the fall you fall backwards.
That means you need to set your clock one hour ahead this spring. Here are some tips to help you to get ready to lose a little bit of sleep when day light savings hits this Sunday.
With more light and a little less sleep for a day, we hope you make the most of it and have fun! At The Village we hope that you are happy and having fun all year long. Happy Day Light Savings everyone!
Happy belated, Read Across America Day from The Village! This Seussical tradition was started by the National Education Association in March of 1997, to honor the beloved Dr. Seuss’s birthday, and make it a grand day to celebrate reading. This tradition has captivated many and has grown and grown. Last year, the National Education Association received 988 pledges for different events in the 50 states of America, as well as in 11 new and extra locations abroad. Many have caught the spirit of this magical, educational event and are using it to inspire others.
Reading can play such an important role in the life of a child. To a child, a book is not just the pages that are turned, but it allows their imaginations and creativity grow, as their minds take-off on different adventures through their reading. Think about your favorite book and the impact it had on your life. I’m sure that book is now wrinkled and worn showing many tattered pages because you took it on your favorite daydreams while still in your youth. Possibly that book even shaped some of the goals that you have for yourself in this life. Being well-read helps with cognitive thinking skills and processing, as well as writing skills and comprehension. Books make a distinct difference by adding so much value, not just isolated to helping our children only do well succeeding in school, but give the ability to open up the windows of their minds and to learn to love reading for a life-time.
The National Education Association had the right idea, when they wanted to celebrate books and the wonderful impact they make on our lives forever. With this added incentive and motivation of this special day, you are just a turn of a page away from your next adventure…so just go and find your next book! Maybe next year, on March 2nd you can dress-up with a little Seussical inspiration and celebrate Read Across America Day! Happy Reading from The Village!
