Opportunity for Community Service Hours: “Putting Pelion Community Garden to Bed” – November 8

 On Tuesday, November 8 from 9 a.m. – noon, students and their families may volunteer their time to Pelion Community Garden as we close the garden for the season.  This is the perfect opportunity to earn community service hours.
Tasks will include:
  • seed collecting
  • clearing ground cover in the growing areas
  • harvesting
  • pruning
  • cutting back perennials
  • digging/transplanting plants
  • weeding
  • uprooting trees
NO SKILLS NECESSARY; please bring your own gloves and dress for the weather.
You do not need to sign up–just show up!
We will provide snacks at the end using some of the veggies we harvest. Parents are welcome to contribute extra if they wish. We will also give away many small perennials to include: white yarrow, daisies, orange day lilies, and others.
If you have extra seeds, tools or other garden equipment to donate, please contact Caesandra Seawell at caesandra@gmail.com or bring the items to the event.
We will also collect BoxTops, mobile e-junk and clear glass bottles for our mosaic project.
Finally, if you have a rototiller, it would really be helpful in clearing out our Three Sisters Island.
RAIN DATE: Friday, November 11 from 9am-noon.
