Volunteers in Action
Volunteers to the Rescue!
Covid-19 restrictions left the Tawes Garden without the help of its dedicated volunteers for several months this spring and summer, to its detriment. A 5-acre Garden/Arboretum needs a lot of care. So we're delighted to report that our volunteers are now back on the job, working in small groups outside while observing virus-prevention protocols. Seasonal work being carried out at the Plant Mural includes weeding, planting new shrubs and perennials, and mulching. Elsewhere in the Garden carpentry repairs are being undertaken and storm-downed trees cut up. It's a sight for pandemic-weary eyes: Welcome back,Volunteers!
