From: “Ithaca Children’s Garden’s Bulb Labyrinth Team”
Bulb Planting Time is HERE!
We are starting tomorrow and carrying on for the next 4-5 weekends, or until finished!
Our hope is we can finish in 3-4 weeks, but it all depends on our dedicated volunteers!
Here is the schedule so far. Please reply to this email and let me know how you’d like to plug-in (how many people and which day/time slot). As you can see, there is lots of room for volunteers tomorrow, and next weekend, during both shifts.
So if you want to volunteer tomorrow, drop me a line and then just show up! RSVPs are most helpful for this project, as there is quite a bit of coordination involved.
Last minute questions? Call my cell phone: 607.227.2982.
Rain or shine (but not storm).
