Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?’” Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on Martin Luther King Day to serve their neighbors and communities. Since 2009, the Good Cheer Garden has launched the garden season on this National Day of Service.
Join us for our annual work party on Martin Luther King Day, Monday, January 19th, from 9 am – 12noon. Weather permitting, we’ll be:
- turning over cover crops
- making our own potting soil, and starting seeds to plant in the hoop house in February
- cleaning tools, and organizing pots and garden equipment
- harvesting compost
- preparing the greenhouse and hoop house for early spring plantings
Help us start the season off right! Picnic lunch at noon with hot soup, bread, and some winter greens!
