There are still a few flowerbeds downtown that need someone to take care of them.

Water is provided by the community services district, but there is no budget for a gardener. If you have a green thumb and would like to help keep downtown beautiful, you’re invited to adopt a plot. Call Mike Sanders at 712-9120, Laverne Buckman at 467-3467 or email
