GARDEN MAINTENANCE BEGAN APRIL 2

Garden maintenance launched on Saturday morning, 9:00am, April 2 with 20-some volunteers helping with a variety of task.  We welcome anyone who wants to get outdoors and help us weed, clean, water, mulch and perform a host of other activities in the gardens at the Durango Public Library. No experience necessary and we have most tools but if you have a few favorite tools and a container for debris, they (and you!) are welcome.  Through the spring, summer, and early fall we gather on Saturday mornings, typically at 9:00am, until the summer heat arrives.  We then beat the heat by starting at 8:00am. Want to help out? Call or text Lynn at 269-282-4850.
