We can use some help to build the remaining raised beds. To clear away all of last year's vegetation and turn the soil. We will also be adding the new soil we just purchased this week ( along with fertilizer and plant food ) to fill in the existing raised beds. The rows in between the beds need to be cleared of weeds and debris from the past winter. Along with some other minor things that need to be take care of like sign painting to label what we are planting.

There will be snacks!
And a small raffle for prizes donated from local businesses

I hope you can make it out. Thank you for the help it is always appreciated.

the Greenpoint shul is located at 108 Noble street ,B/w Manhattan ave and Franklin street

Transportation:
G train to Greenpoint ave
B62, b24 and B43 to Greenpoint ave

Coming up :
We will be be having a few transplanting and seedling days in mid to late May when the plants arrive and are ready to be put in the ground. Stay tuned.
We will also need volunteers to help with watering / and weeding/ and harvesting starting in late May so please let me know if you are interested to help out. Its easy with the hose and only takes 10 to 15 minutes in the morning or evening.
