Our Pioneer Village volunteers are looking to get a village garden started again this year but we are going to need help. The plan is to try to plant period correct plants, herbs and dying plants. You don’t have to commit a large amount of time if you don’t want to, even pulling weeds will help! For those of you interested in gardening in the village several of us will be getting together Sunday, March 7th at 12:00 p.m. to discuss placement of the gardens and get a list of plants that we should grow. Let’s meet at the bridge/dogtrot area and move from there.
Pioneer Village Garden Meeting
