Ongoing on Wednesdays:
Students are invited to stop by the nursery on Wednesdays to participate in the ongoing hands-on operations. Your involvement may include watering, seed planting, weeding, transplanting, pruning, or inventorying, to name a few. Come see what we’re up to and stay as long as you like. We’d be happy to talk with you about nursery procedures and teach you some skills.
