Food Forest work bees ~ please join us!

Thursday, August 2nd from 5-7pm Please join us as we tidy up the garden and enjoy the fruits of summer! New volunteers are always welcome. We’ll have work for all ages & abilities.  Tools & snacks provides, but please bring your water bottle.


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) Signage– we’re hoping to have a template designed that is 1/2 of the size of the current cage signs. This will make them less vulnerable in the wind, and would reduce the cost of laminating. We’re going to try a UV protected stronger lamination this time around. If you have graphic design skills and would be willing to take this on, I can provide you with files to get the project started! This could be perfect for a student project as well.
