Garden Club Work Day
Time: 9:00 a.m.

The scheduled work day for preparing the vegetable garden at the Collins House has been postponed until Saturday, April 1 at 9:00am.  

 

The ground is too cold to turn over and work in the compost at this time.  We’re hoping for warmer temperatures in the next couple of weeks to thaw the ground.  

 

I know the house will also be open on the 1st.  Lots of activity happening that day!

We begin preparing the garden for spring planting. Boy Scout Troop 93 from the Meadow Heights Baptist Church will be helping. The public is welcome to join us for this fun work day!
