Final Work Party – December 1, 2018 10 AM Rain or Shine
Make plans now to attend the final work party for the 2018 season as we put the garden beds to rest for the winter. We need all members to assist by clearing weeds and foliage from your garden plot before we add lime and straw to cover the beds before the rainy season. This is a chance to provide important Volunteer Hour time and to congratulate ourselves and others for valuable contributions to our garden.
As a special incentive we will be raffling off a free garden plot of your choice for the 2019 garden season at the end of the work party. You must be present to win. Remember, many hands make light work for everyone. We look forward to seeing you at the garden on Saturday, December 1st!
A NOTE FOR OUR VISITORS:
Good Earth has exciting and informative classes throughout the year. Watch for notice of classes during the 2019 growing season! See Calendar and Events pages for details.
