Volunteer Planting Days


 Saturday, November 23rd 


Saturday, December 14th 

10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Join us for a volunteer planting day in the Tending and Gathering Garden! 

We will be prepping and planting areas with locally sourced native seedlings! This is a very satisfying volunteer experience because there’s no better feeling than walking away at the end of the day and knowing that you helped establish native habitat! 

Gloves and tools will be provided.
