Spring Work Day
Ready or not spring is coming! This Saturday, March 18th at 8:00am we will be working on filling the vegetable garden boxes with dirt, for they have settled a bit since first started. If the weather cooperates, we may also do some light spring clean up in preparation for mulching and mowing season. The more hands the better. Hope to see you there.
Peace, Brian Robinson
