What we'll be doing
On this third day, Saturday, we’ll finish the gardens with a community planting and celebrate afterward with a potluck lunch provided by the neighbors. No prior experience is necessary. FUF will supply tools and guidance. FUF planters are quite knowledgeable and you will have the opportunity to learn lots; just go ahead and ask as the day goes along.
I will be taking public transportation. there's a bunch of ways to get there like market street which has a bunch of trollies that run a block from this site. if you can get to market street, you can get to this site - easy peezy. to gather your bearings, this map shows the work site as a red blip a block from market street and in the opposite corner you can see 16th street bart station in blue text.
What to wear/bring
• Bring water to stay hydrated.
• Bring sunglasses/hat and wear sunblock if the day is sunny.
• Wear work clothes that can get dirty -- your shoes, especially, will be covered in dirt by the end of planting.
• Gloves and other tools will be provided on site but if you have your own pair of garden gloves, bring those instead.
We'll celebrate afterward with a potluck lunch provided by the neighbors. There is no mention of coffee and pastries in the morning so if they do provide, great. if they don't, best munch a bite before leaving the house.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
