Big THANK YOU to Spring Starter Volunteers

We had our first community volunteer day of 2011 at the garden yesterday, and despite the crummy weather, we had a fantastic turnout! The Spring Starter brought out an enthusiastic group of volunteers that spent the afternoon transforming the garden. Alongside a few of our community gardeners, volunteers of all ages pulled out the invasive weeds that have been creeping up throughout the garden.

We also had our PRIZE DRAW! Melissa won a Potato Fusion kit, & Sarah won a Seeds of Plenty gift basket! Way to go ladies…

We are grateful to have such devoted volunteers and hope to see them again soon! A big THANK YOU to everyone who came out to support TWIAG =)

In other news…our successful Potato Fusion kit sale has come to an end, but we have many more exciting events and fundraisers coming your way!
