Summer Gardeners- Keep Calm and Garden On with the HFE Garden this summer! It’s (in my opinion) the most magical time to be out in the garden, and we could really use some help with a few items. Additionally, if you do help out, we’d love to share the harvest with you 🙂 Here are a couple upcoming volunteer options:
– Medicinals Session of Garden Summer Camp- Wed. June 17- 8am-12pm– We need one volunteer to come help with this day’s session of garden summer camp. The theme for the day is Plant Medicinals, and we’ll be making salves, tea (a.k.a. lotions, balms, the like) and other plant based medicinals. If this interests you, please let me know and I’ll send you more info!!
– Overall Garden Maintenance- June 22-26- Two dates that are convenient for you- HARVEST INCLUDED ON THIS ONE!! THIS IS THE BIG ONE WE NEED HELP WITH: I will be out of town visiting my family June 22-26, and I could really use one (or more) people who would be willing to come on two dates that week (preferably Tuesday, June 23 and Thursday, June 25) to water, weed, trim, harvest, replace mulch, check for pests and the like. Additionally, feel free at the end of your second shift to harvest yourself a CSA-style bag of goodies 🙂 If this interests you, please let me know and I’ll send you more info!!
– July Garden Work Day with Lunch Potluck- Sat. July 11- 9am-12pm– This is our one Garden Work Day for the summer before we come back to school, and we’ll be doing it potluck style 🙂 So if you feel like coming out to help transplant some stressed out fruit trees, or just do some overall summer garden maintenance, we could really use the help!
Again, THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO TO SUPPORT OUR PROGRAM, WE WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO PROVIDE THESE WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITIES TO STUDENTS WITHOUT YOUR HELP!
Hope to see you out in the garden this summer!
