2018 Planting Day

We are inviting all people willing and able to help us make the Gardens colorful again for 2018. Our annual planting day has been scheduled for Saturday, May 19, 2018 at 10:00 am. Please bring trowels and gloves (and kneeling pads if you want those). Ernie and Shirley will make sure the beds are ready, and have plant material for us to install. This usually takes about 2 hours, and is lots of fun.  Wear a hat or sun cream if it is sunny.
