Update on Seeds of Change, & Upcoming Volunteer Days

Unfortunately we did not receive the Seeds of Change grant this year, but we have definitely raised awareness for the Needham School garden.

On May 5th and 6th we're excited to host a group of volunteers from Animas High School from 10 am - 3 pm to build a compost bin and other projects at Needham!

If you have construction experience and would like to help, please contact Sandhya Tillotson asap. Thank you!
