Growasis & Garden Plant Maintenance

Come help us take care of our educational greenhouse space, our Growasis! The Growasis is home to a variety of tropical trees, perennial herbs, and annual vegetable plants as part of a permaculture food forest design. This includes activities like pruning, watering, transplanting and other general garden maintenance. During the warmer months we need help with weeding and other maintenance in our outdoor classroom gardens! Year round, we need help caring for our chickens and bunnies!
