Volunteer work party for the Good Shepherd Center grounds at 6 PM on Wednesday: We could use some extra hands to help maintain the gardens at the Good Shepherd Center. Many hands make light work and will help us tackle things we don’t have time for otherwise. It will also give volunteers a chance to do a little gardening and get to know the garden better, including the plant collection, history, and future plans.
