Spring Cleaning in the Turtle Bay Garden

Here are some photos of Redding Friends volunteering in the McConnell Arboretum & Botanical Gardens last March. It's nice be a part of the care of this beautiful community garden.

There were endless leaves to rake to keep the garden beds clean.

A few of the fellows working hard!

And the ladies working equally hard. :)

A lovely spring day in Redding!

Unity with Nature: PYM committee sent an email asking for items to display at PYM. We will send the poster that Kathleen made for the Whole Earth Festival with Doug. Strawberry Meeting has adopted a testimony on Earthcare, which we will discuss at the next dinner among friends. Ed report that our table for the Whole Earth Festival was in a good location and many people liked the $40 solar oven. Cookies were a draw, but not many took fliers. Next year we plan to design an oven to show people how they can make their own oven. Visit HYPERLINK ""
