Weekly Garden Work Parties, Thursdays

Come join us in the magical Westgarden! Every Thursday, beginning May 4th, we will convene at 9:00am to work together in the garden. Tasks might include picking raspberries, pulling carrots, harvesting culinary and medicinal herbs to dry, making flower bouquets, washing veggies, flipping compost; the work can be tailored to fit your skills, interests, and mobility. We’ll gather at 12:30 to eat a simple lunch of soup and salad, prepared by us for you, our wonderful volunteers. We will resume work after lunch if needed but feel free to come and leave whenever works for you. Please contact Westgarden Steward Brit Schneider if you have any questions at brit@whidbeyinstitute.org.

Trail Work Days, every second Saturday

Join us for trail work days every second Saturday of the month, beginning May 13th. We will work from 10 am to 12:30 or 1 and then share lunch together. Soup and salad will be provided and volunteers are welcome to supplement anything else, potluck style.
Work will include pruning, clearing debris, re-grading trails, removing invasive species, and more. Work can be tailored to fit your skills, interests, and mobility to the extent possible. Our goals are to tend this beautiful forest as a community, to give our attention to its life and development, to learn together, to keep these public trails safe and accessible, and to enjoy ourselves in this place.
If you have them, please bring hand pruners, loppers, a pruning saw, and gloves. We have extras if you do not have these things. Also, be sure to wear protective footwear, sun protection, and bring plenty of water and a snack if needed.
For more information, please contact the Land Steward, Robert Mellinger, at robert@whidbeyinstitute.org
