Work Party – September 16 – 5pm

Work Party – Monday Evening

5pm before the Monthly September MeetingIMG_5728

The next work party to weed out Equisetum from our first bed will be next Monday evening September 16 starting at 5pm, but come when you can.

This is before our membership meeting that same evening at 7pm.

Bring weeding tools, water, clothing appropriate for the weather. Also a bucket or other container to toss your weeds in is useful. We need at least one rake and broom, the rake to rake the soil so it looks like nobody stepped on it, and the broom to sweep the sidewalk.

We have new HPSW work party signs which we will inaugurate at that work party.
