Anytime Garden work to do this week only:

Read May 31 and June 1 Garden Blog to see what work can be done ANYTIME this week.  Email me to let me know where and when you can work. 

"ANYTIME" Garden Work includes 3 gardens:

3300 So. C Garden and South Jordan A and B Gardens


Other GROUP times when we need your help include:

Thursday, June 2:  6 - 8 pm  Taylorsville Garden 

We had planned to work in Riverton tonight but that has now been changed to Saturday at 12 noon.  Urgent work needs to be done in Taylorsville Garden laying down the Black Plastic Mulch. 

More about why we use Black Plastic Mulch:

We will be placing a LOT of black plastic mulch in MANY of our gardens this year for all of our heat loving plants!  This will eliminate weeds, protect our crops from bugs and insects, AND retain the moisture for a water-wise garden AND absorb a lot of heat in the soil, which these plants love!  It takes a little extra work in the beginning but it will save us a TON of time and effort throughout the entire growing season!


Thursday, June 2, 5:30 pm   Holladay A Garden

Work with Carman at the table in my backyard.  Detailed work, adults only, transplanting tomatoes into bigger containers.  Peppers are next and more plants we are still continuing to grow from seed.  Carman will be over seeing all of this work.  She generally comes around 4:30 or 5:30 pm.  Work is always at Holladay A Garden
