Please consider signing up for City Schoolyard Garden's Harvest of the Month program. It is a wonderfully uplifting experience whether you are handing out healthy samples of locally grown veggies to first graders or to high-schoolers! Give it try—it's fun and rewarding!
No big fundraisers this year (phew!) as we have enough on our plates, so please help AGC's bottom line and purchase your spring bulbs through Brent and Becky's Bloomin'Bucks reward program. This is an easy but crucial fundraiser that not only brings rewards to the club but ensures that you will have a beautiful spring garden (hopefully in time for Historic Garden Week!)
