 We got the grant from Home Depot for the fence!

We need all the volunteers we can get May 2, for the installation of the fence. Bring all your friends and family to work day. Home Depot will be providing some volunteers, but this is a big job so please show up! Lunch will be provided.
Anyone is welcome to volunteer to help!
Lunch will be provided to all volunteers.

Prep day for the donation plots this Saturday March 29th from 10 AM to noon.

This Saturday the volunteer coordinators will be preparing the four large donation plots for kick off day. We will be there between 10 and noon.  If you would like to come out and help, that would be great. See you there.

Kick-off day is April  12, 2014 9 to noon.

Kick-off day for the garden is April 12, from 9 AM to noon (or as long as you want to work). We will be cleaning up, turning the soil in the plots, putting in burlap paths, installing drip systems, and planting seeds.  So, come with lots of energy!  Bring family, friends, neighbors, coworkers or anyone that would like to get their hands dirty.  The more who participate, the better!  We really need your help.

Come one come all…..

If you have a shovel and or rake please bring it with you!

Mike has offered his broadfork for those that would like to use it.  It is great to use instead of tilling or turning with a shovel.  See link below:
