We need volunteers to help keep our garden looking beautiful. If you like to garden and want hands on learning about how and what to grow in our area of Florida, this is the place for you. Currently there are 4 gardens in need of an "owner". Several of our long time volunteers are getting older and have decided to retire. If you want to "own" one of these gardens we will welcome you with open arms. Herb Garden, Rain Forest Garden, Parker Ave Garden, Secret Garden and the Palm Garden are all ready for you to bring you ideas to keep them looking beautiful. One day a week is all you need. Just show up on Sat, Mon or Wed morning and see Mary Wuest. There are also many opportunities to volunteer even if you do not want to take on an ownership of a garden. We have fun working at the gardens, come join us!!
Please, keep appropriate distances wherever you may go, wash your hands, and if you do not feel well, PLEASE stay home and take care of yourself!
Stay safe and follow the recent guidelines for safety.
