Thank you to all the awesome folks who came out to the CCG Volunteer Orientation last Friday! Even with the rain we had a strong showing with 10 new volunteers joining us. Erica did a swell job showing folks around the garden and we all got to meet new friends. This year is looking to be great for growing and sharing in the garden.
This week’s work party will be held on Friday from 2:00-3:45 pm. We will be working in the compost and weeding the giving gardens. Come join us – no previous gardening experience required.
Garden Event Organizing
If you’re interested in helping to organize events or workshops centered around growing, consider joining our outreach team! We’ll be planning an upcoming farm tour, DIY Garden Box workshop, and more! Feel free to sign up to help with one specific event or a multitude!
