Adelphi Community Gardens Work Day

The corner of Adelphi and Amherst, across from the Texan Market, is the location of the new community garden. There will be a big workday at the garden coming up on Saturday, June 14 from 8 to 11 a.m. The link to the volunteer and items to bring sign up is:  http://vols.pt/RkzMBE

OKWe’re going to be mulching the common area, removing invasive plant material,
working on our compost area and putting up our owl house! Everyone
should wear appropriate work clothes with closed toed shoes and
sunblock. Please bring a water bottle, bug spray, gloves and a hat with
you.

We appreciate any length of time that you can volunteer, but we must keep
track of our volunteer hours so please be sure to sign in and sign out
at our volunteer check in station before starting to work and then again
when you leave. Parking is limited so either walk to the garden or park
across the street in the Texan Market’s lot.
