Our regular 4th Thursday session (July 23) has been moved to the 5th Thursday (July 30) since I’ll be at the Cullowhee Native Plant Conference.
If you would like to join our wonderfully dedicated group of regular volunteers, which normally takes place the first Tuesday and Thursday of each month, the third Saturday of each month and the fourth Thursday of each month or would like to help when possible, just let me know when you can attend.
Helping in the Atlanta History Center Gardens is an excellent way to learn about horticulture, spend time in a beautiful setting, work alongside interesting people and volunteers are often able to take plants home!
Since we plan or activities on the number of people signed up for each session, please let us know if you will join us. Likewise, if you have signed up and are then unable to attend, please let us know as soon in advance as possible.
I hope to see many of you soon! And please see my plants wish list below the signature line.
