Do you have a green thumb and want to get your hands dirty? Then you should join our gardening group! We will be keeping busy maintaining our vegetable garden as well as planting and caring for a variety of flowers in our beds and planters around the agency. Our new backyard oasis will also include a greenhouse where we will grow our own plants from seed and maintain the numerous new shrubs and fruit trees that will be planted on the grounds. This class will also do some canning and preserves in the fall that participants will take home to enjoy.
Geocaching is an outdoor sporting activity in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) to hide and seek containers called “geocaches” or “caches” in the community. A typical cache is a waterproof container that is hidden in nature with its co-ordinates listed online and can also contain items for trading, usually toys or trinkets of little value. Geocaching is often described as a game of high-tech “hide and seek” or “treasure hunt.” This is a new program and it will prove to be a blast for everyone who joins!
