3:30 pm–Garden Dedication & Planting Rain or shine at the corner of 3rd and Grimes! Wear clothing appropriate to the weather. Our raised garden area is covered in a layer of 4-6 inch wood chip mulch, so it shouldn’t be too muddy in the garden itself but it will likely be wet. Some parking available along 3rd street and along Grimes (in front of the old St. Mary’s schoolhouse.) Seeds love to be planted in the rain! They appreciate the immediate moisture and subsequent watering.
