Gardening is for optimists, and we’re certain that the snow will melt in time for our spring work days! Choose the day that’s convenient for you –Saturday, March 21 from 9 am to 12 pm at the First Aid Squad site, or Sunday, March 22 from 12-3 pm at the Town Hall site. You can help at either site, regardless of where your plot is. Look for an email from “Sign-Up Genius” and register for the day you’ll be helping. Family and friends are welcome to join in!
