Our wonderful garden is in need of a little TLC so the children can begin planting and utilizing this great learning resource. We need volunteers to help weed the garden!! Any time you can give (even if it’s just a few minutes) at any time of the day that is convenient for you, please stop by the garden to pull out some of the weeds that took root over the summer.

All tools (hand trowels and hoes, gloves, etc) are available for you to use in the garden shed located in the A/C enclosure next to the garden.

You can use the Sign Up Genius link by clicking here to volunteer, or just stop by whenever you find that you have a little free time!

Contact Tiffany Tainter (817-287-8708, if you have any questions.

Thank you in advance for your help!!
