Volunteers help in sprucing up of community space
Are you interested in gardening at the Wellness Center and Garden for the 2012 growing season?
In all, 15 volunteers turned out to build garden boxes, haul soil and lay weed barriers and pathways. Submitted
Individuals and families can sign up for a garden box by calling or stopping by the Del Norte Health Access Assistance Program office. Garden space is limited. Any community member is welcome to sign up to garden at no charge.
Meanwhile, the Del Norte Healthcare District, Del Norte Community Health Center and the Health Access Assistance Program would like to extend a huge thanks to the community members and clinic staff who volunteered at the Wellness Center and Garden workday on Saturday, June 2.
Fifteen volunteers turned out with garden tools and cordless drills from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to build garden boxes, haul soil and lay weed barriers and pathways.
We also finished shelving and garden beds for inside our 30-foot greenhouse.
Without the hard work, generosity and dedication of our community, this project wouldn’t be possible. Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far.
But our project isn’t complete yet! We will be hosting additional work days in the coming weeks. If you would like to volunteer to help expand the garden or install our playground, call Del Norte Health Access Assistance Program at (707) 465-1988, or stop by the office inside the Wellness Center, suite 200, to be added to our volunteer contact list.
Hope to see you in the garden!
