May Day / Work Day / Beltane Celebration

This time is ripe for garden work. We need your ready hands. There are so many ways to plug in – from planting to soil ammending, to shaping beds around our new beautiful garden center piece. This garden will bring joy to program participants all season long. We need your help readying to feed campers and expanding the educational potential of our garden space.

Come for as long or as short as you like. There will be time for work and plugging in, for sharing food, and for creating meaning and beauty together.
