Saturday, October 10th from 9:00 a.m. until noon we will be in the GRACE Community Garden working on fall tending and planting.
Enjoy the lovely fall morning (weather.com says 66 to 78 degrees!) as we plant cabbage transplants, turn compost bins and add leaves, and weed and mulch until the job is done!
The GRACE Community Gardens are a way for GRACE to provide those in need with healthy, organic produce. Each month, volunteers are needed to help with a major planting, prepping, or harvesting event. Don’t worry, experience is not necessary! Garden Leaders will be there to give direction and educate volunteers on gardening.
What to bring: Water bottle, closed toe shoes, and sunscreen. If you own gardening gloves and knee pads, please bring them! There are some at the gardens for those who do not have any.
“Gardens are not made by singing ‘Oh, how beautiful,’ and sitting in the shade.”
–Rudyard Kipling, ‘The Glory of the Garden’ (1911)
Let’s get dirty and help some plants grow this Saturday morning!
