Garden School Foundation Workday

Update, February 26, 2010: We’ve just received word that tomorrow’s workday has been cancelled due to anticipated rainstorms in the area. The next workday has been scheduled for March 27.

The Garden School Foundation has announced that it will hold a workday on Saturday, February 27th, at the 24th Street School (2055 West 24th Street, in Los Angeles). If you’re interested in contributing to the school’s efforts to develop its garden and are available between 9:00am and noon, please contact Nat Zappia, the GSF Director, at nat [at] gardenschoolfoundation [dot] org.

Volunteers should bring garden gloves, water, sunscreen, and a shovel or pitchfork to help with building new beds and preparing the garden’s 75-foot production bed. Other volunteers will be asked to assist with spring plating and building infrastructure (benches and compost sifters).

For more information about the Garden School Foundation, visit its website or contact Nat Zappia for more information about the organization, its work at the 24th Street School, or how to volunteer time or donate to their efforts.
