The students have worked long and hard to rip out all the weeds in our front gardens. We rototilled, raked with hardback rakes, shoveled and ripped the roots out with our bare hands, yet, still some roots remain, and are growing into nasty weeds ready to choke up our garden again. But with your help we can keep them in check.
Do you have 15 - 30 minutes free? Dropping the kids off or picking them up from Day Camp? Do you know the difference between a Hosta and a Dandelion? We need you; our hostas, peonies, dogwood, mugo pines, yews, hydrangias, spireas and grasses need you. When you have time, the two gardens by the sign in front and the one by the entrance could use your TLC.
