Community Work Bees

Saturday April 13th, 1-4pm

Sunday May 5th, 1-4pm

Saturday June 1st, 1-4pm

No experience necessary! We’ll supply the tools and snack, but please bring your water bottle. In the event of rain, we’ll reschedule- so stay tuned!


We are looking for help with a few specific tasks and wanted to spread the word. Here is a short description of these- please get in touch if you can help out!

1) Step repair- anybody experienced with masonry? Scotty has identified a repair job at the steps. These steps are a wonderful feature of the garden and need a little mortar and TLC.

2) Irrigation – we are looking for an individual who is enthusiastic about learning the ropes of our irrigation system under the mentorship of our current guru, Scott Davis.
