Spring is here (hopefully summer soon!) and it is time to give the CSCS Labyrinth some gardening love.  Over the last year, we have been able to install a beautiful labyrinth path and garden using a student design, work from many volunteers, and donations of both materials and energy.  Within our labyrinth is a partial stone path that is using the bricks sold in the CSCS Buy a Brick Campaign.   In order to do keep our labyrinth beautiful, we need some help with weeding, mulching, and laying a little more gravel.   

We are planning a big work day on June 3rd from 9 am - 3 pm.  We will then continue needing some help weeding and maintaining the labyrinth on the following dates in the summer: 

June 21 3-6 pm 

July 19 8-11 am

August 23 8-11 am

For each work day, please bring your own gloves, water, and lunch (for 6/3).  If you have a wheelbarrow that you could transport and use for 6/3, we would greatly appreciate it!  

If you are interested in working any of these days, please sign-up using this form: 16-17 Labyrinth Work Sign-up
