May 7th – North Grand Christian Church volunteers will help deliver and install the remainder of our raised garden bed kits

Sunday, May 7 – morning (time to be determined) at Burnett Urban Farm two houses south of Meeker School.

We are again wanting to help folks get started in growing food and will be giving away what we have left of raised garden bed kits. They include repurposed wood from the Habitat Store, screws, and an organic potting soil mix from Cowsmos Dairy in Wisconsin.

We also will have some vegetable seedlings, rhubarb starts, and over-wintered Marigold plants to give away as well as large garden pots and other donated supplies.

North Grand Christian Church is having a day of community service on that Sunday, and several of their volunteers will be here to mentor and help. For further information about the day of service call 515-232-1060 or email

Free will donations encouraged, but definitely not required. All donations will be transferred to Mustard Seed Farm for its new well and rural water system.

If you are decluttering or downsizing and have garden pots, fencing, tools, seeds, or other related items, to donate, check with Helen for advance approval and delivery arrangements.
