Garden Ministry Seeks Volunteers for North Campus Projects

Join Sacred Heart’s Garden Ministry for a day of cleaning and beautifying the grounds of the North Campus on Saturday, Feb. 19, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

As the parish continues to make regular use of the North Campus for outreach and events, the Garden Ministry is working to make the grounds more inviting for all. The group is requesting the help of all parishioners with a handful of projects that require additional manpower.

Projects to be worked on during the clean-up event include:

  • Plant and tree removal
  • Planting new bougainvillea (digging and soil prep included) along rear border and walkway
  • Ground leveling and gravel installation around mausoleums
  • Cleaning debris along Lake Avenue and Jefferson Street

Lunch will be provided to volunteers. Those planning to assist should be prepared for physical work and bring their garden gloves, sun protection, and bug spray. Common garden tools, such as shovels, trowels, pruners, trimmers, and wheel barrows also would be useful for volunteers to bring along, if possible.

Volunteers can sign up to assist with individual projects here.
