Join the Queens Platoon on April 10th as we partner with GreenThumb to help out the folks at the Trees of Life Organic Garden do some highly needed face-lifting. Here are the details for the upcoming event below: Summary: We will be working with gardeners from the Trees of Life Organic Garden to refresh the space for the 2021 gardening season! Tasks: During our volunteer day we will address several garden tasks. 1. Removing and replacing, or repairing, existing raised planting beds. This task requires use of hand tools and small power tools (screwdrivers, drills, hammers). We will work on these just a few at a time, we don't want to remove any beds that we don't have time to replace. 2. General garden cleanup. This task will involve some light weeding, trash pickup, and raking of leaves/twigs. This will make a huge impact on the overall appearance of the garden! 3. Weeding in plant beds and pruning of shrubs. It is important to prune the dead parts of shrubs to make space for new growth in spring. Some of the plant beds have weeds growing. We will remove these weeds and lightly cultivate the soil and add compost so it is ready for planting. What to Bring/Wear: Please be prepared for a day outdoors! Bathrooms are available in the park across the street. GreenThumb will Provide: All tools and supplies needed for tasks Garden gloves Volunteer forms* *Note: All participants must sign the attached liability waiver upon arrival at the volunteer day. Signing of the photo/video release is not required, but strongly encouraged so that we can take some pictures of our fun day together! If you have any other questions, comments or concerns, hit me up!
