You can also get involved with the garden on Global Youth Service Day (April 24) when we break ground on the garden, and the following weekend (May 1) when we begin planting. Lots of volunteers are needed!!! We can't wait to get started on this project, and we've loved working with United Ames to facilitate the AmeZone youth group during this planning process. It's really a huge group effort and the more people working us on it, the more this will truly be a community garden!
