Grow And Share Ramping up for 2011

So excited about planting in January!! It will be here before I know it. Some really high quality soil will be here soon.

Couple of things for those of you interested in helping:

- MLK Day Of Service we're building a school garden in Franklinton NC and could use some help (and lumber!)

- We have Gardener's Calendars for 2011 that tell you what can be planted in each month. Donate and we'll send you one. :-)

Look forward to growing food with you all in 2011!
