Volunteers Needed this Saturday to Move Wheaton Garden

We need help re-planting our native garden!

Saturday April 23, 2016
2 PM to 6 PM
as we move the Rainscapes Garden from Parking Lot 13 in Reedie Triangle to Veterans Park.
After 5 years the Rainscapes Garden will have a new home during re-development.
(For more about the location, please see the Eventbrite link, below.)
Please come out and help us plant natives!
Even if you only have an hour to help, stop by and dig in.
“Native plants provide ecosystem services such as sequestering carbon, cleaning air and water by filtering pollutants, capturing storm water, stopping erosion, building topsoil, providing diversity for insects and pollinators, and connecting humans to their natural world”. 
 
STUDENTS SSL Hours available!
Refreshments will be provided. 
If you have gloves and/or digging tools we encourage you to bring them.
We will have a limited number available as well.
