How would you like to get involved?
- Planting sessions: just show up Wednesday mornings from 9:00 to 12:00. We meet in the “lath area” adjacent to the employee parking lot just east of Gaiser Conservatory. Please park on Tekoa. You may want to bring some garden gloves and maybe some snipers.
- Plant sales: Many needs.
- Children’s Renaissance Faire: Supervise an activity for four hours, also setup and teardown.
- Holiday Lights: ushering in the evenings.
- Board of Director’s support: usually requires computer skills.
