UMNA maintains six decorative neighborhood gardens. This does not happen without the help of many volunteers. Volunteers meet at a different garden each week (Wednesdays 6-7 pm) to perform routine maintenance and occasionally, more serious interventions. If you can help out, pleases contact Jane Alexander at GoJane@frontiernet.net. It’s a great way to meet your neighbors, share gardening tips, and have fun! No experience necessary!
