  • Barron Community Garden – Community Nights 2017
    Volunteer during a Community Night at the Barron Community Garden.  Community nights are every Tuesday (except July 4) from 5-7pm.  During this time, all community gardeners are encouraged to visit the garden and socialize with one another.  A shed is open with community-shared tools available for anyone to use.  We’d love for a Master Gardener to make an appearance at most of the Community Nights.  You don’t need to stay long.  Just show up and check how everyone is doing – answer questions, provide resources, give advice, etc.
