“How can I help?”
planning on “Building” our Community Garden on Saturday, April 14th from
8:00 am- ?. We have applied to the IUP Office of Service Learning’s “Into
the Streets” program on this day. However, we are looking for anyone in our
community interested in volunteering their
time or tools (shovels, rakes,
wheel barrows, tools) to assist us in building 15 raised garden beds,
digging and hauling soil.
We are also currently seeking donations from
the community to assist us in purchasing the necessary supplies to build our
Community Garden. Please see the attached flyer. A donation of $100 will
provide all of the materials needed to construct and fill a 4′ X 12′ X 10″
garden bed AND your name will appear on a small sign beside the bed.
A donation of $42 will provide wood necessary to build one raised garden
bed and a $58 donation will provide 1.5 tons of topsoil to fill one
raised garden bed. However, all donations are more than welcome.
