GARDEN COLLECTIVE BERRY PATCH WORK BEE

posted 15 Jun 2016, 21:43 by David Taylor

We had a grand time at the berry patch last week. Over a dozen people showed up to weed, eat ice cream and fresh berries. A big thank you to those people. The plants are in great shape now. We'll do another weeding and berry eating session in July. But feel free to stop in any time and pull a few weeds.
