Monarch Grove Garden Project
Date & Time:
Saturday, March 16, 2019
9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
4 have signed up & 6 openings remain.
The Monarch Grove Children’s Garden was created in 2005 by a group of parents who revamped an existing California native garden and constructed raised beds for vegetables and herbs on an unused portion of the school grounds. Over the past years fruit trees have been planted, a garden shed purchased, a larger worm bin constructed, and the creation of an outdoor classroom. Our Love SLO project needs at least 10 volunteers willing to do garden bed amendment with manure, spreading wood chips, native garden trimming, and sheet mulching with cardboard.
Children 11 years and under must be accompanied by an adult. (At least 1:3 adult:child ratio)
When you sign up for the project above you get a free Love SLO t-shirt. The shirt is available to be picked up at any time from J. Carroll (113 Cross St., San Luis Obispo, CA 93401 / 595-1000). Go into the main lobby, tell them you signed up for Love SLO, and they'll give you your shirt. Easy as that! Otherwise we'll have your shirt at the Mission Plaza the morning of the event.
Love SLO (March 16th) begins at 8:00am in the Mission Plaza. Festivities (free food, fun, etc.) begin at 8:00am and the Rally will begin around 8:30am. You will meet here before going to your project location. When you arrive, you'll want to find your project sign and meet your project leader. After the Rally, you will meet at your project sign and hear important instructions from your project leader before going to your project location.
