First Building Urban Garden Blitz a Success

Thank You!


Thank you for your helping hand with our July BUGBlitz.  The grand success of this Blitz was due to all of you who attended our first BUG Blitz! We built two raised garden beds for vegetables, a new “bee garden” to attract pollinators, and built a bee hive! The potluck we shared was also particularly delicious!  We greatly appreciated your help, companionship, fun attitude and we look forward to seeing you at the next one.

Please feel free to pass this along to anyone else you think may be interested in joining the next BUGBlitz. People can learn more here on our website, and sign up for BUGBlitz updates here.

Again thanks as we could not have done it without you!
