Gardeners and help needed

Raymond Age Friendly Community Connections is looking for volunteers to help with several projects.

Two gardeners are needed to work with children to plant a garden in the spring, and four gardeners are needed to make sure the beds are watered and weeded throughout the season. A drip irrigation system is being installed, so only barrels will need to be filled using the water hose.

Volunteers are also needed to work with the children’s librarian on a series of outdoor story times and to staff and organize activities for the senior library hours on Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to noon.
