SnoValley Tilth coordinates this local chapter.

Workshops are currently planned for 6-8pm on fourth Sundays, May-September, with optional potlucks to start and end the program.

Follow gravel road at a VERY slow pace to avoid dust kick up on neighbor’s house by the road. Gravel road bends right at the fork and goes all the way to the the end where there is a clear parking area on the left, either side of the mulch pile. Continue walking down gravel road towards a faded, yellow double wide trailer. The crew should be circling up there by the rock gardens.
