Garden Update: Roger as well as others have been busy preparing the garden this spring. The fence has been expanded and straw has been purchases to help with weed control.
Roger and Juli, volunteer in the garden, are asking for large rectangular planters (totes) to use in the garden. They do not have to be new or in great condition. If you have some sitting around you are not using and are willing to donate them to the garden at All Saints Lutheran Church, contact Roger (563.343.1886) or leave them between the church building and the shed. Thank you!
