Saturday, July 10, 8–10 a.m., 10 a.m.–noon, (or other time within that span)

UUC’s got weeds! The church’s landscaping is overrun with weeds, thanks to the one-two punch blessings of our irrigation and June’s hot weather. We’ve got thistles, buttercup, bindweed, oxalis, johnny jump-up, and milkweed, among other guests in our planting beds.

Join us at our weeding party on Saturday, July 10, for all of us who would like to share some outdoor time with fellow church members. Friends are welcome. We are asking for advance registration so that we can make the most of everyone’s time. Click here to register. Let us know if you’d like to come from 8–10 a.m., 10 a.m.–noon, or other time within that span.

We will have limited tools, so please bring gloves, hand tools (weed pullers, trowels, shovels, forks, weeding knives…) and make sure to put your name on them. We will be digging out those weeds!

Remember to dress for the weather and bring water (we can replenish). Some individually wrapped snacks (Kind bars, fruit) will be provided, and feel free to bring anything else you might want to snack on.

Note: UUC will also be holding a Kids Art, Games & Activities event from 11 a.m.–noon that day, so we’ll plan our work areas to avoid interrupting their fun. Parents are welcome to help in the gardens while their children are playing.

If you have questions or suggestions as we work out the details for this weeding party, please contact Gayle or Byron.
