It's takes a lot of energy to keep the place up to par.   Fortunately many neighbors enjoy working with each other in the garden.   The Saturday work parties started March 2015, and we really had a lot of fun transforming the lots for the July 4th coming out party.  There's the regular stuff like sweeping, weeding, cleaning house and the like.   But it's the special stuff that makes it fun.  The most fun is meeting new neighbors.    Stop by from 10am to noon, sometimes we are there longer.   During the winter we've been meeting every 1st and 3rd Saturday, but that may change when the weather returns.  No invite needed.   Gloves provided.

Here are some of the projects on our list.   If you are interested in a particular one, or want to make a contribution to one in particular, or have questions, let us know venicecanalsartgarden@gmail.com.
