Yes - Garden Work-Parties are great fun! I like to have them where the host also provides some food aftewards for the workers...I’ve been part of volunteering in the urban zone gardens, and I’ve hosted a work-party out at Heartsong Garden Sanctuary. The ones Jeff organized last year requested the receivers to volunteer at someone else's garden, and to provide a simple meal. Meeting on a weekday evening in the spring & summer worked well since weekends are few & busy times.

Its a lot of work to prepare but fun! I’m usually swamped in the garden through May ...but I might create something at our rural garden early May...or show up as I’m able at someone else’s work-party...If there’s food I can bring a strong man with me too!
Potlucks & with work time fine too. Remember to check our TW Events page for other events happening at the same time anyones considering a work-day.

Hi All! I was thinking the other night. (that always gets me into trouble) That it would be fun to get to know each other better and help everyone out by having a roving Laurel garden work party. My thought would be that once a month we would do an afternoon project and a potluck meal at each of our places.
Any takers. Who wants to help organize? I know I have too much on my plate all ready but I had to put it out there.

Hi Transition Laurel, especially Brian for your suggestion. I'll be out of town until the 6th of April, but after that I'd be interested. I hope someone will keep me posted. Welcome Amanda! Cyndy
