Gardeners/ Landscapers Needed
We would like to beautify the front of Grace Cafe (Louttit Hall).  If you love to garden/landscape and would like to help with this project, and know what plants thrive in shade and sun, please let Steph Johnson know.  This might be a little bit at a time project. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
