Spring has sprung, and the garden is getting busier.
In addition to monthly garden-wide work parties there are many tasks around the garden you can volunteer for on your own time that can earn volunteer hours towards the required 8 for the year.
Many p-patchgardners have still not registered for a task or a team – we need your help to keep the garden running smoothly!
Please contact anyone on the leads team listed here if you have any questions on ways you can help. Here are a few things you can sign up for if you are interested:
