THANK YOU to Cub Scout Pack 280! They built 4 new wooden benches for the garden. Check out these "update" photos below of what's currently in progress.

We need A LOT of help! Here is a list of things that you can do to help. You are welcome to just show up and help anytime.

2. Thur and Friday: People to organize and setup fro Saturday's (4/21) event. We have 200 supplies that we have to sort through and setup for.

3. People to come every other day to water the plants. Bring some watering cans or buckets. Please donate watering cans if you have some.

4. Succulents and/or succulent clippings. We have a hill section to cover.
