    Monthly All Hands On Deck Volunteer Event; 5-8PM

     

    Every month we have an All Hands Volunteer Day at The Learning Garden-Tom Graham Park.

     

    This month we are going to work on summer gardening activities like feeding and protecting your garden soil, composting, summer planting and organic pest/disease control in our Coastal South Texas climate. We’ll discuss and compare notes on all things related to gardening during the summer in our region.

    If this is your first time to The Garden, welcome! Please bring your own water and wear closed toed shoes. Bring your favorite gardening tools if you’d like. We’ll be planting, laughing, weeding, growing community and growing food.

    Can’t wait to see you!
