Growing Friends Community Garden of Wisconsin Rapids Workdays

Empty lot on the corner of Spruce Avenue and Hill Street
Volunteers needed! The Growing Friends Community Gardens of Wisconsin Rapids committee has scheduled a few spring work days. We are looking for volunteers who would like to get their hands dirty building beds, laying down cardboard, hauling compost and shredded bark, and roto-tilling traditional garden plots. The gardens are located on the corner of Hill and Spruce, across the street from the Assumption soccer field. The work days are scheduled as follows:
• Wed, April 24th, 1 pm – 7pm
• Wed, May 1st, 1pm – 7pm
• Mon, May 6th, 8 am – whenever we get everything done!
Bring with you if you have them: Gloves, ear protection if you are working around a saw, eye protection, cordless drill, shovels, pitchfork, cardboard to be used for smothering grass, wheelbarrow, hard rake, roto-tiller, hammer, and/or measuring tape. If you do not have any of these things, that is ok too! Bring yourself and your energy at whatever time you are available on these days! All hours count towards United Church of Christ Mission 4/1 Earth goals!
