Friends gardening together
Info on Garden Work Day, Saturday April 16th, 8AM-12PM
Volunteers from William Jewell will be at the garden around 8:30-9 to help gardeners. These volunteers will be available to help gardeners with tasks and place compost on gardeners if asked.
NOTE--The volunteers will also be placing wood chips on the grass paths between the gardens this year so the WJC grounds crew won't have to mow.
If any issues arise you can call me on my cell if I'm not at the garden (816) 522-2136 or contact Jeff Busher from WJC (816) 853-2598.
Please remember to be courteous at the garden and dispose of any trash. If the trash barrel is full please take your trash with you and dispose of it off site.

April 16th-Spring Work Day from 8AM to Noon
Our Spring Work Day is April 16th from 8 AM to 12 NOON. This is a good day to meet other gardeners and give or receive help as it is needed! Be sure your plot is cleared of items by Friday, April 1st. On that day the plots of those of you who indicated you DO NOT want your plot tilled will be marked on all four corners with colored marking flags. Please DO NOT remove these until after the tilling. Tilling will happen between April 2nd and April 15th. If your plot is not clear of items, it will not be tilled.
