Garden Elves

Garden Elf

 

Garden Elves are the people that help keep the gardens neat and tidy at St. Paul's. Building on the theme that "many hands make light work", we're inviting you to help with just a small part of the total gardening effort.

See the list below for the various tasks. Each asks you to do one part of the total effor for just one month of the summer. Given that the gardens are in pretty good shape to begin with, some may require no more than an hour or so, or maybe just a few minutes 2 or 3 times a week to check if the pots need watering.

If you're willing to help for one (or more) of these tasks, please click here to drop an email to Ron and Sandi or feel free to call at 387-9940. We'll be glad to explain in a little more detail what needs to be done.
