Thomas Street Community Garden
The folks at the Thomas Street Community Garden are having a workday on the 15th. Here is part of the Email sent out asking for volunteers.

"We're having our big AmeriCorps workday at the Thomas Street Garden (2655 W. Thomas Street), on Saturday May 15. We'll kick things off at 10 a.m. and run 'til sometime after noon. We should have 8-10 AmeriCorps volunteers showing up to help rebuild the flagstone circle with mortar that we've purchased. Other projects on the to-do list for Saturday are to build new raised beds along the fence lines in the veggie garden, install our glass bottle pathway in the parkway, harvest our compost, and of course, plant some perennials and vegetables. I've got a few more projects tucked away if we run out of work to do..."
