We have partnered with Gardening the Community (GTC) out of Springfield, MA for this first year. A fantastic, vibrant, growing non-profit that could use some helping hands. Check out their website and their Facebook page.
Please RSVP to Kristian via email so we can help GTC anticipate the number of volunteers.
Wear or bring shoes and clothes that can get dirty. We will update you later in April if we need some volunteers to bring tools or supplies. We look forward to a Saturday afternoon where our organization can harness the powers of our membership.
