The snow is melting quickly.  Carla has decided it’s time to start prepping the garden.  
There are plenty of things we can get started on.  

We are looking for volunteers for Tuesday, March 25th from 4:30 to 6pm.   And then on Saturday, 3/29th from 9 to 10:30am.

Spreading Compost

 

It looks like we may have a pack of cub scouts who will be pitching in.  The plan is to start spreading compost and work on some spring cleaning.  Let’s hope the weather co-operates.

Please let us know if you can help out.  Click on the Volunteer Button to let us know you’d like to help out this season. Many thanks.
