Garden Day at Roosevelt Growhouse

Sunday, January 26
This Sunday, volunteers are invited to help harvest lettuce, plant vegetables, and apply compost tea to the beds at the Roosevelt Growhouse. Compost tea is great for gardening, so this will also serve as an opportunity to stop by and learn how to make some for your garden. Volunteers also will be welcome to take some of the harvest home, so you'll even get to take home something for your work. For more information, visit the Roosevelt Growhouse Facebook page.
And while you're down there, do yourself a favor and stop by Melt for a scoop of Fruity Pebbles ice cream.
