Central Park Gardens to host Volunteer Orientation Day

By From page A5 | April 24, 2014

Do you like gardening? Are you looking for opportunities to give back to the community?

Davis Central Park Gardens is putting together its first Volunteer Orientation Day from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 3, at the gardens along B Street between Third and Fourth streets in downtown Davis.

Orientation day is a chance to see how fun, easy and helpful gardening in Central Park can be. Participants also will be just steps away from the Farmers Market.

Central Park Gardens is a completely volunteer-developed and -run organization. Volunteers work to create inspiring demonstration gardens and engaging educational programs. These community resources aim to motivate home gardeners in the region to adopt more sustainable gardening practices.

“Our dedicated volunteers come together to care for the gardens and, in the process, have lots of fun, meet like-minded people, learn more about gardening themselves, as well as have the joy of contributing to a community treasure,” a news release said. “The more volunteers who are able to participate in the gardens, the lovelier our community treasure will become.”

The orientation day event is the best way to be introduced to the gardens — its mission, team and opportunities. There will be an opportunity to tour the gardens and get to know some experienced and helpful CPG members.

RSVP by Wednesday, April 30, to [email protected]. Light refreshments will be served. For more information, visit centralparkgardens.org.
