Calling all volunteers!

VOLUNTEER: GARDEN FEST 2014 Planning committee

This summer's 3rd Annual Garden Fest needs a special planning committee. The Saint Mary's Events Committee has scheduled the event for August 16, rain date August 23, and it will probably be held in Marysville.  
For those unlucky enough to have missed out on Garden Fest in the past, it's an outdoor musical festival, held for the last two years at St. Mary's Community Garden: a celebration of garden and community, featuring local performers.  A warm, cheerful celebration is what it's been, and we think we should continue the tradition.

If you would like to make yourself available for several meetings and a few hours of work between now and mid-August, contact Madeleine 


We need mentors to help and guide those in our group with limited or no experience with gardens.  We are planning to have mentorship days (four Sunday afternoons in May and June), and we also suggest that our volunteers wear their special identification (we are looking at getting pins or bandanas) whenever they are in the garden so people will know to come and ask questions.  If you have an area of specialty (e.g. square foot gardening, growing herbs...) or experience please let us know.

If you would like to be a mentor, contact Carol Muncer
