Calling all helping hands, again!

Last week was a success!
Thank-you again to all participants last week!

Last Sunday we brought together a great group of hard working volunteers to begin preparation of our raised beds for community gardens & production. We had gotten plenty of work done over this past week and have already begun preparing for another, even bigger, volunteer driven work day.

This Sunday, May 15th we will be working in the fields of Niantic Gardens to construct more raised beds. We rely heavily upon volunteer efforts so anyone who is willing to help us out this weekend please come by for some hard work and some fun afterwards!

So long as the weather permits, we plan to get a burn permit for the day so we can have a bit of a bon-fire!

We will start work at 10am and finish sometime between 3pm and 4pm.

Things to bring:
*(asterisk means very important!)
  • *water
  • *lunch
  • rakes
  • hoes
  • hat (the sun beats on you particularly hard in an open field)
  • *work boots/work shoes
  • gloves(optional)
for directions call/text Greg @ (401) 654-3865 or email Greg@RevivetheRoots.org

We hope to see you there!
