If you are signed up to work a bed you are welcome to go and work anytime that is convenient for you. Remember that the Plant Sale is April 23. We will be having tours and classes in the garden this year, so all the beds and the garden needs to be looking good for our visitors.

We do have some schedule work days coming up for clean-up and prep work. Due to the Plant Sale being so near and some big events happening in April and May we have adjusted the dates a bit and added some extra work days. Please come and help as you can.  Also feel free anytime to stop by to help weed and maintain the beds all year long.

Our regular schedule will be the 1st Wednesday and 3rd Saturday of each month. However, some alterations have been made due to the 10 Mile Yard Sale, Air Show, and Wilderness Wildlife Week. After May, we will be back on the regular schedule. Below are some dates and details about the work that will be going on.  Please come and help if you can. It is a great chance for service hours. The more hands on deck we have the quicker the work will go.
