In the afternoon, we will head outdoors and get hands-on with rock work and planting.

Participants should come prepared to work outdoors. Please bring a re-usable water bottle, sunscreen, hat, and appropriate clothing and footwear. Please bring work gloves if you have them. Close-toed shoes are required. All tools will be provided.
