We Have the Tools and Gloves!

The BELL has plenty of tools and gloves to share with our volunteers and drinking water is available as well, but it is always a good idea to bring your own bottle. Please be prepared and wear weather appropriate clothes and shoes – make sure to wear closed toed shoes and clothes you don’t mind getting a little dirty. Some people enjoy having knee pads or a wide brim hat also.

Get ready to meet some new friends, catch up with old friends, have fun and learn something about gardening and chickening!

“It was a great day spent with my kids, feels good to reach out and help where help is needed, a good lesson for my kids. Everyone at BELL Garden was very nice and appreciated us being there. Can’t wait to volunteer again soon.”

“The coordinator, Nancy, was great. She made sure we had the right tools and understood the scope of our task and its part in the larger picture of what the garden was about. The project she had our small group do (weeding around 4 newly planted blueberry bushes) was perfect to earn us a sense of completion.”
