Spruill Gallery Garden - Help, Do, Teach

This is the method my Grandmother used to teach my Mom how to prepare a Thanksgiving feast.  When the time came, my Mom used it to teach my sister and I.  First, you help someone else prepare one.  Next, you're on the hook to create the meal, from start to finish, with help from Mom, of course.  Finally, you teach someone else how to do it because it reinforces what you've learned and you are not likely to forget what you've taught.

This method can also be applied to gardening.  The Spruill Gallery Garden is a great opportunity to learn how to garden.  And, it is an equally great opportunity for you veteran gardeners out there to teach someone else what you know about gardening.  There will be folks out there at all levels.  The funny thing about gardening is you can be helping, doing and teaching all at the same time!  There is always something new to be learned.  So, come on out and join the fun!

This is a call for volunteers!  

Installation is scheduled for early May.  There is much to do before then.  
Come for as long or as little as you can.  Just come!
As a bonus, those who volunteer will get first dibs on the old cinder blocks that will be removed from the old beds.  They will be given away for FREE!  These blocks are great to use as a stable base to raise a rain barrel off the ground, to border a garden or create a green wall, to build a firepit or compost bin or even to elevate a bee hive.  I have even seen one crafty person turn a cinder block into an attractive bird house.
