Help Jump Start the YMCA Flatiron Community Garden! 4/14 (E)

From Colleen Connolly:

This semester, I have been working with Peter CampoBasso, Mariah Williams, and Kate Workman at the North Richmond YMCA for our SSIR capstone projects. We have been helping to jump start the development of their Flatiron community garden. Throughout the semester, we’ve been planting seedlings indoors and working on some education components with the 3-5th graders. Next Saturday, we will be having a big work day in the garden. We will be constructing 6 raised beds that will sit in the garden, as well as mulching the entire plot.

The more hands we have in the garden next Saturday, the better!  . . . .

When: Saturday, April 14 10:00am-3:00pm

Where: North Richmond YMCA 4207 Old Brook Road  Richmond, VA 23227 (down the street from Henderson Middle School and John Marshall High School)

What: constructing 6 raised beds and mulching the garden
