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.

Regular Garden Crew Workday 4/8/10
New blooms included species tulips in several parts of the garden along with many more daffodils.
Our next workdays include next Thursday (4-15-10) and Saturday (Earth Day 4-17-10) from 9am until noon. On the list is continuing clean-up (plants and the shed), placing hardscape, placing bricks, and feeding the birds. On earth day we may plant a small tree if the ground is soft enough and sand the raised beds.
On Earthday we will also orient people to working in the garden. Come join us!
