THINK SPRING! SJTW GARDENS START UP AGAIN

YOU CAN RENT A $25/YEAR PLOT OR LEND A HAND FOR ST. VINCENT DE PAUL

Would you like to grow your own veggies?  We have garden plots available, 10x12, behind the church in a bright, sunny location; just $25 for the season.  

We also have an area where we plant veggies, berries, and fruit for St. Vincent de Paul.  We really need help with this area - and you get to take home a portion of what you pick, if you like.  

The work is not hard and we have fun visiting.  If you would like to give it a try, we would love your help.  

You don't have to come every week; try every-other-week or once a month if that fits your schedule better.

We work Tuesdays and Fridays, depending on the weather, from 9 or 10 to about 1pm.  If you would like to volunteer in the evening, let me know and we can get an evening group going.  If you wish to rent a plot or want  to help, call Becky at 503-449-8552.
