Help Clean Up the Foodbank’s Garden!

HELP!!  We need volunteers on Earth Day (Friday, April 22nd) to join No Limits Eastern Shore as we clean up the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore’s Community Garden and get it ready for spring planting!  Come and get your hands dirty with No Limits in order to help your community – please bring your own hand tools and gardening gloves (if you are able).  Water and resting areas will be provided.  Come out and lend a hand in getting the Community Garden ready to feed the hungry this growing season.
