Digging In The Dirt!

January 28th, 2015

Improve the Soil slide

Dear Friends,

Last fall, several of us got together to rejuvenate the dirt and introduce water-wise perennial plants to our parking lot area.  It is just about time to continue that work!

I am planning on “digging in the dirt” on 1 or 2 of the warmer Saturdays (or weekdays) mid to late February.  It is fun to have others join in.

Please send an email to joanhueffner@sbcglobal.net if you are interested in helping with this landscaping project.  Include your preferred time (Sat or weekday – morning or afternoon).

Thanks and hope to see several!
