Shared Bounty community garden in Dexter needs volunteer help.
Not only is this a busy time for YOU as the winter grudgingly gives way to a Spring (of sorts) and we dash around trying to get plants into the ground, but the large community garden in Dexter also needs help. Saturday mornings from 8 to 11, the small band of volunteers who grow the vast array and amount of food for free distribution to area seniors all season long invest their sweat and love into the project, and could happily use assistance in weeding, planting, harvesting, bagging and any other of the myriad chores involved. Please consider coming on any Saturday morning even for a short time to lend a hand. The garden is on Rt 23 at Fred Sherburne’s place on the Ripley road just a mile or so South out of Dexter, on the left side of the road going up the big hill; you can’t miss the sign. Call for more info: Deb Burdin 924-6538, John Gornall 924-5232
