Because our last green team meeting planting was rained out, we will be meeting this Thursday May 16th to finish planting in the garden. Our field trip will be on May 30th. I apologize for the confusion on the permission slip. Please wear appropriate clothing and bring gloves if you have them.

Can anyone donate a bag or 2 of mulch for 5/16?
