Workbees

Interested in Volunteering  with us?

Interested in getting out into the fresh air for a few days of work?  It is hard work –  with a lot of bending and kneeling.  But the air is fresh and the birds are singing.  We are planning on several COVID safe workbees.  We will limit the number of people participating,  so we can keep everyone distanced.

NOTE –  we will not be co-working with you.  So this is not really an opportunity to watch and learn from us.  This is a chance for you to get outside in the fresh air,  get some exercise,  help us out for a few hours,  and take home some loot in exchange. 

Here is what our line up for spring looks like. 

Saturday May 1 – 9:00am – 1:00pm:  Spring cleanup and prep work:  clearing beds, dividing some perennials, spreading mulch….   In return,  you’ll be able to dig and take some perennials  and/or seedlings home.  

Saturday May 15 – 9:00am – 10:00 pm:  Spring planting:  transplanting flower and vegetable seedlings,  spreading mulch…   In return,  you’ll be able to take home some seedlings and roots  for your own flower/veg gardens.

If you want to participate –  send us an email and let us know which days you are available.

We’ll contact you a few days ahead to confirm and give you more details.

A few important notes:

These are workbees not social outings.  We love it when you bring children to pick flowers later in the season –  but not for these working days please.  It is just too chaotic,  and there are too many dangers about.  We worry too much.

Please only contact us if you are serious.  We count on different tasks getting done on these days.  Its a plan. So it is very disruptive when we are expecting someone who doesn’t come.   We need our plan to come together!
