Community Garden Cleanup Day

Mark your calendar – LOTS of volunteers needed! Our big Garden Cleanup Day is scheduled for Friday, April 12, throughout the day from 9am-3pm…no green thumb necessary! We need approximately 10-20 volunteers to come help us turn our soil, amend it with compost and fertilizer, rebuild planting boxes, and other garden tasks. Please contact if you would like to help for any part of the day. Many hands make light work!

Free Flu Shots!

40 free flu shot vouchers will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis, courtesy of our community partners Americares and Walgreens. Nurses will also provide free blood sugar and blood pressure screenings.
