Central Natural Environment Gardens
Get ready for another great season of gardening!
Get into gardening!
Thursdays 9am-12pm (weather permitting) beginning June 11.
Volunteers have been at the heart of Central Natural Environment Gardens since they were first established in 1995. A great way to meet new people, learn new skills, and be outside! Join us to learn more about organic gardening and native plants! Bring a hat, work gloves, and sun protection. We'll provide tools, training & refreshments. Children welcome. No experience necessary!
June 10 & June 17
An hour of weeding is an hour of power! Can't volunteer at the garden during work hours? Get outside after the office and help us get the gardens looking great!
