Weed Warriors We are still looking for Garden volunteers, now called Weed Warriors, and would love your help. Contact email@example.com. The first Thursday of the month, we do a big group weed from 2—4pm, and then socialize afterwards with refreshments. Many hands make light work and we have a lot of fun doing it. Please join us!
Chipped Mulch: Chips are available from the upper parking lot. You can help yourselves for free or give us a call (463-2697) Ben can load your pick-up with our tractor for a small $25 fee on mornings that you arrange with him. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and include your telephone number so he can set a time.
Cardboard Boxes: Please consider recycling your large cardboard boxes here at Boxerwood. We use them all the time for weed suppression. You can drop them off anytime in the side entrance of the barn.
