Volunteer this Saturday and receive a garden grown cabbage for St. Patrick’s day!
 
2. “What’s New In The Garden” by Rebecca
Spring is here. Beautiful peach and plum blossoms abound the garden and the first asparagus of the season unearthed itself to the world today. The raspberry patch is being reworked for easier access to succulent raspberries and the weeds are everywhere if you haven’t noticed! It’s also a great time to plant your spring lettuces and peas!

3. Greenhouse Schedule – Volunteers Needed The greenhouse is in full swing with the Saturday Harvest Market just around the corner –opening first week of May – and I need your help. I am looking for volunteers who can routinely open, close and water the greenhouse. With the weather warming up, the greenhouse needs ventilation during the day but with the chilly nights, our little babies need to be tucked in. Please let me know, it’s as easy as opening (or closing) a door and checking the seedlings for water.  rebecca@sonomaecologycenter.org
