Don't worry if you don't have tools, we can use plenty of hands. Please help us spread the word to help us get as many volunteers as possible. We greatly appreciate your time and we look forward to seeing the GP regulars and meeting new faces at our next exciting volunteer project!

    Thank you everyone for all your hard work! It's so nice to go out to the backyard and see such a wonderful natural setting. I feel so much closer to nature and I know I am going to learn so much. And it means more to me, because so much love was put into it. Thank you for helping me become more green. I couldn't have done it without you!
