Gardens Founded in 2001 - Home in 2002
The garden crew is active from April-October and sometimes in November weather permitting. Work happens weekly throughout the garden season on Monday and Thursday mornings from 8:00 am-12:00 pm. It also is scheduled for one Saturday a month from April through October. Cancellations due to weather will be posted by 6:00 am of the workday on this blog. You must attend a spring orientation to the garden and Northland Hospice & Palliative Care in order to work. A summary of the work that has been done is included on the blog. Look for weekly postings on this blog during the garden season.

Earth Day Workday 4/17/10
Next week we will begin our first official workday on Thursday from 8am-12pm. Come for any part of that time. Jobs include, sanding raised beds, deadheading, watering, filling bird feeders, and getting out hardscape. Parking is available at the 1st Congregational Church on Turquoise just past Switzer Canyon. The roses need to be pruned and Marion Lopez our local expert, will be in the garden on May 6 to help direct rose pruning. We have more than 40 roses in the garden and they provide a good opportunity for learning pruning.
New blooms: many more tulips (species and regular)
