The Glenridge Garden Needs You!

The Glenridge Green Team won a free dump truck load of compost last spring and now we are ready to fill in our mini garden spots!

Volunteers are needed Saturday, August 29, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.! Bring your shovels, spades and hoes; bring your clippers, buckets and wheelbarrows to help clean up our garden and planter areas. We need to cut back overgrown ivy and dig up weeds, grass clumps, and plant!
