Garden Club Needs Us!

It’s time to get the Irving Garden growing and we need your help!
Here’s Denise Frank explaining how it works. Sign-up Genius link is below. We will follow up with you with specifics after you sign up for a task. You can sign up for more than one if you want.
It’s divided up by garden bed and each garden bed connects with a book that the plants will be themed on. Watch the video for ALL the details. You do not need to know about gardening (honestly I am still learning a lot too) the team will coach you and let you know what needs to be done. We will also practice safe social distancing.
Here’s Denise to explain how it all works….
Let us know if you have any questions. We will add more slots for watering and weeding later in the summer also and depending on what happens in the Fall we will adjust then too.
