Our April 23rd workday is still on. While the snow has melted in the city, at Woodbine there is at least a foot or more of snow in places that haven't been plowed or shoveled. Therefore our workday scope has changed from gardening to grounds preparation, primarily outside. Come prepared for snow/mud and outside work, with appropriate clothing and footwear and please register so we that can better prepare our work day.
