Donate Tools and Time
The Gardens can always use donations of tools, wheelbarrows, and carts! Other materials may be needed on an occasional basis. Please contact the registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss any possible donation.
Volunteers with special skills (plumbing or carpentry, for example) are often needed, and volunteers with the enthusiasm and energy to help run the gardens are always needed! Read more about serving on the Garden Committee and check the Gardens’ home page for the date of our next meeting.
