Our annual Fall Harvest Festival is only a few short weeks away!  We have been VERY busy on site getting the gardens and grounds ready – hence the lack of blog posts lately.  But starting tomorrow, I’ll be rolling out a bunch of fun posts about garden updates, festival news and fun activities coming our way.

To get us started, I wanted to invite you to participate in a great volunteer opportunity at the Arboretum on Sunday, September 11th from 2-4:00 p.m.  We have partnered with the Volunteer Center of Cedar Valley for this special event to honor the 10th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks.  Volunteer activities will include general garden maintenance, grounds upkeep and even scarecrow making (to be a part of our festival scarecrow auction) in preparation for our festival the following week.  Please consider volunteering!

To register for this event, please contact the Volunteer Center of Cedar Valley at 272-2087 or information@vccv.org .

JOIN THE VOLUNTEER CENTER OF CEDAR VALLEY TO HONOR THE VICTIMS, HEROES, AND ALL THOSE WHO ROSE IN SERVICE FOLLOWING THE TERRORIST ATTACKS THATCHANGED OUR NATION.

WHO: Anyone interested in making a difference in the Cedar Valley through service! All ages welcome.

WHAT: Planting trees/shrubs and general garden maintenance.

WHERE: Cedar Valley Arboretum & Botanic Gardens;  1927 E. Orange Road, Waterloo.

WHEN: Sunday, Sept. 11, 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.
