We have two garden work days planned for the Winter Break! December 20th and January 3rd, from 9am to 12pm. The plan is to knock-out the following between the two days: 1) Spread remaining wood chips in the garden area…we are so close; 2) Lay the foundation for the potting bench and path for our neighbors to access the community beds; 3) Finish filling the herb garden with soil; 4) Start prepping the butterfly garden beds and assembling the beds by the 5th Grade Commons.
Also, we have a couple of opportunities to help without coming to a work day. Please let us know if you have time to help with one of the following: 1) Remove and replace a rotten board on the existing bench as well as sanding and repainting the entire bench; 2) Build a potting bench, approximately 10′-12′ long and about 30″-32″ high, similar to this.
Any and all help is welcome (even the littlest helpers can make a difference and are welcome)! Please bring work gloves, shovels, wheelbarrows, and garden rakes if you have them. Let Elissa email@example.com and Julie firstname.lastname@example.org know if you have any questions. We hope to see you there!
