Get Your Garden on In Union Hill

Come and garden in Union Hill with us! In the morning we'll start at 10:30am in Rachel's large garden where she'll teach you basic organic gardening skills. We'll plant sweet potatoes, tomatoes, peppers and learn organic pest & weed control techniques, water conserving techniques and more!

After a quick break for lunch (bring $5 to chip in for pizza) we'll work on the Union Hill Community Gardens to re-mulch and care for the apple trees and blueberry bushes we planted last October. We'll also plant flowers and Spring bulbs to help attract pollinator insects.

Coming from Monroe Park Campus? Meet at 10am at the Cabell Library bus stop to bus or bike over together.
