Friendship Circle Needs Volunteers to Help Their Garden Grow!
Friendship Circle Senior Center of Darby needs volunteers to serve on the center’s Garden Team. Team members will create a plan for the crops, prepare the garden, plant vegetables and engage in regular maintenance such as watering and weeding to ensure that the garden is successful. Gardeners for the team are needed from late March, all spring and summer, right through October. The center’s garden grows more than 100 vegetables each year, and those vegetables are given back to the community at the center. Volunteers are needed specifically for Wednesday mornings during the growing season.
Come. Volunteer. Help make the garden beautiful!
Anyone 55 or older with skills (or just interest) in this area who would like to volunteer time and talent helping on this project is asked to call Michele O'Brien at RSVP, (610) 565-5563, extension 14.
