Calling all gardeners! It's time to set up our community garden again. We're going to expand the garden this year: Plans are in the works to involve students from Tecumseh, and to invite our neighbors who live in apartments to come and garden here.
We need people to help set up the garden this Saturday, March 17th, starting at 10:00 a.m. The Boy Scouts are coming by to help as well, after they make the rounds of their canned food drive that morning. So if you want to be doubly helpful, come lend a hand and also bring a can or two for the scouts.
