St Mary’s Anglican Church, Whitby has initiated a community garden project and Marsden Whitby is 'very' keen to be involved! Harcourts have sponsored the project and provided planter boxes for the garden, one of which will be dedicated to Samuel Marsden Whitby. In order to get the project up and running, however, we need help from the wider community. This Saturday, August 25 from 1pm, a working bee will be taking place at the church to move soil into the boxes in preparation for planting, so we are calling for student (and parent) volunteers to come and help shift that soil! A free sausage sizzle will be available for all participants. Each volunteer needs to have their own gumboots (or shoes that can get muddy!), water bottle, shovel and preferably a wheelbarrow. A dust mask to avoid inhaling soil particles is also recommended. Any questions, contact Megan Ward - megan.ward@marsdenwhitby.
