School’s on again, and we’re busy getting the garden ready for our fall garden classes. We’re asking if any of you would be able to help us with a couple of projects that are coming up soon. We also have some on-going volunteer tasks that are listed at the bottom.
Saturday, September 6, 9:00 am to noon.
We need one or two people to help us this Saturday with a Volunteer Workday. We already have plenty of volunteers lined up to do the work, but we need a couple of people to help supervise the workers.
Wednesday, September 17, 1:00-3:00pm – Spread the Harvest Resource Give-Away
As part of this program, we are eligible to pick up a truck load of great compost for the Green Classroom! The pick-up takes place at the New Day Community Garden at 2215 E.M. Franklin, and we need a truck to be able to get the maximum amount. Does anyone have a truck to use for this project? In addition to the truck and driver, we will need some volunteers to help us load and unload.
If we can’t get a truck for the pick-up, we still need even more volunteers because we will need to bring lots of bags and bag the compost. It’s a lively scene there at the Austin Baha’i Center on pick-up day, so we hope you can join us for the fun!
