Calling all Depavers - We are planting!!

Work parties at Project DEPAVE's Fargo Gardens (3122 N Williams, at NE Fargo) continue on June 6th, from 11a-5p. Come on out and join the fun! After de-paving the parking lot last June, we are in the final stages of sculpting the planting beds, shaping the trails and gathering spaces, and creating a rain garden. We need your help during these last 2 spring work parties to plant our apple espalier along the fence, amend the garden soil, and install the plantings in the rain garden

Work parties will begin again in the fall to complete the garden planting. We are always looking for more help, so tell your friends and pass it on. There is always food, music, and lots of great community! For more info contact Ted at [email protected] .

Free your soil!
