Let’s Get Back To Work!
We will resume our workday schedule this Sunday, May 17th from 9:00 am -1:00 pm
We’re hoping to accomplish the following Sunday:
- Finish the butterfly garden
- Continue adding cardboard to the pathways and mulching – please bring extra cardboard if you have it
- Poison ivy removal – wear appropriate clothes and disposable gloves
- Work on compost area – bring any extra coffee grounds to add to our compost
Don’t forget – if you cannot fulfill the 2 required volunteers hours during the work days you can complete them during the week. Starting this weekend, we will post ongoing tasks and projects on a board in the Tool Shed.
ACCESS If you share a plot or different members of your family need access to the garden please share the gate access code with them. If they would like to be added to the plot holder communication email list let us know.
