Work Party Schedule is set – alternating Thursdays and Saturdays [UPDATED]

We decided at our board meeting last night to alternate weeks for our work parties. We’ll decide whether the Bressingham beds or Entrance Bed 1 is where we’ll work, once we are there and see what needs to be done.  Bring a hat, water and sunscreen and bring whatever you like to weed with – a hori-hori, or trowel, etc. Also bring a garden fork, a rake, and maybe a shovel and broom.

 The next work parties, alternating weeks:

  • Thursday August 9th, 1-4 PM
  • Saturday August 18th, 8:30-11:30 AM
  • Thursday August 23rd, 1-4 PM
  • Saturday September 1st, 8:30-11:30 AM
  • Thursday September 6th, 1-4 PM
  • Saturday September 15th, 8:30-11:30 AM  [UPDATE – CANCELLED – SEE BELOW]
  • Thursday, September 20th, 1-4 PM
  • Saturday, September 29th, 8:30-11:30 AM



  • Thursday October 4th, 1-4 PM
  • Saturday, October 13th, 8:30-11:30 AM

  • Saturday, November 24th, 8:30-11:30AM

If it’s a morning work party, we’ll head to Burgermaster afterward for lunch.

The Bressingham beds are near the CUH building, so the nearest parking is near the CUH buildings. Entrance Bed #1 is near the road, so the nearest parking is on 35th NE before the turn into CUH.
