Curtis Friends Spring Outdoor Clean UpApril 6th, 2015
Spring is finally in the air and I can (almost) say with (some) confidence that the snow will fully melt and we can all begin to ready our gardens for the summer season.
I am excited to welcome everyone to sign up to join us for the Curtis Friends Spring Outdoor Clean Up taking place on Saturday, May 2 from 9am to 12pm. Lunch will be provided following your efforts thanks to the Curtis Friends.
Tasks will include weeding, raking, replanting, pruning and other tasks as we discover what is hidden under the snow!
We’re using VolunteerSpot (the leading online Sign-up and reminder tool) to organize our upcoming Sign-ups.
Here’s how it works in 3 easy steps:
1) Click this link to see our Sign-Up on VolunteerSpot: http://vols.pt/tcFD4i
2) Review the option listed and choose the spot you like.
3) Sign up! It’s Easy – you will NOT need to register an account or keep a password on VolunteerSpot.
Note: VolunteerSpot does not share your email address with anyone. If you prefer not to use your email address, please contact me and I can sign you up manually. The system will even send you a reminder two days before the event!
A huge thank you is owed to local company We Compost It! (http://www.wecompostit.com/) They are donating 100 pounds of compost to be used to get our gardens started. For a small monthly fee, they will deliver you a bag of compost at the beginning and end of the season as well as your first bucket. Each week, you place your bucket on your curb, they pick it up and leave you a new bucket. They estimate that half of your garbage is made up of compostable materials. After finding success in southern Maine, they are here in Brunswick. What an awesome service and we are grateful to be working with them to put locally sourced compost into our gardens.
