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.

Garden Workday 7/15/10
Thank yous: Kay and Laura )for watering some of the pots (with all the rain the garden was fine) and thanks to Cynthia for managing the crew.
Cynthia Davis, Linda Guarino, Marcia Lamkin and Laura Davis all worked on the 10% day and deserve additional thanks.
Dave Hill and Zane and the volunteer coordinator Jacque Auxier also represented hospice at the fundraiser.
I will be back in the garden on Thursday and the focus will be on the planned new garden (Michael Moore Medicinal Native Plant Garden), cutting lavender, planting a shrub, and continued revamping of the front gardens. As usual we will be watering, weeding, and feeding the birds.
