Summer Gardening Help

Summer Gardening Help Needed!! Our butterfly and vegetable gardens need some special families to volunteer to maintain them this summer. It's very simple to help...volunteer for a one week period, and then stop by twice that week to pull some weeds. We have a watering system, so that's taken care of. All the supplies you'll need (gloves and shovels) will be in a box ready to go so you and your family can come at your convenience. If you can help, please click the link below and sign up! Thank you so much for volunteering! https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0a4fa4ad22a2fb6-summer
