Get Some Dirt on Your Hands!!


Volunteers are needed for a garden-building project this Saturday, November 17, at the former Lincoln School on North 10th Street in Lamar.  The Project HOPE Teen Center is constructing a HOPE Center Garden in a section of the playground and your help would be appreciated. 

The weatherman is predicting a sunny day with a high around 60 which will be great weather for a little outdoor work between 10am and 4pm.  Volunteers will install the garden beds and soil, lay out the irrigation system and even do a little artwork with the students and advisors. 

Bring what supplies you can such as a wheelbarrow, shovel, gloves, trashbags and screwdrivers and drill.  Call the Project HOPE Center at 336-7741 to volunteer.  Lunch will be provided.   

This project will allow the students to cultivate their own garden in the spring and summer, growing vegetables they’ll use for meals and perhaps develop into a future farmer’s market.
