Volunteer Opportunity in Slow Food in Schools Garden

Come one come all! 

Friday, July 6 from 9 am to 1 pm.

Join Slow Food Delta Diablo for the amazing experience of participating in the Slow Food Delta Diablo Slow Food in Schools Organic Garden at College Park High School in Pleasant Hill. The garden needs some love for the summer to keep it vibrant until the student stewards return in the fall. We will be pulling weeds and laying mulch as well as adding compost to beds. There is an abundance of opportunity for seed saving from astoundingly fragrant sweet peas and huge Oriental poppies. Bring gloves, hat, water. Please let Lesley Stiles know if you can help out. lesleystiles@comcast.net or 925 323 3230
