"The Garden Tinkerers"
The volunteer gardeners at Tinker Nature Park have started work on the display gardens and will also begin planting around the Tinker Homestead beginning May 30th. If you have an interest in gardening or want to learn more about gardening new volunteers are always welcome. You may contact the nature center at 359-7044 if interested in joining the "Garden Tinkerers"





Thank you John Colagrosso and Kathleen Rick who have spearheaded the garden projects at Tinker. Thank you also to all the volunteers who come out and help with the dirty work. The beds have never looked this good - this early!
