Mitzvah Day in the JShare Garden Sunday, June 14, 2015 - 10:00am - 12:00pm

Mitzvah Day in the JShare Garden

We’ll be participating in the Potsdam J Share Project. J Share grows organic vegetables for needy families and food banks in the North Country. No gardening experience needed! Come help and join the fun! RSVP to Free Beth El t-shirts and snacks for volunteers!

To get to the garden -- drive to Lehman Park, which is located on the Raquette River a bit south of town.  As you drive south on 56 past SUNY, look for Akwesasne Drive.  Take that right and drive all the way down to the parking lot and the river. Walk along the river's edge, upstream (south; there is a path - go first through a field, then through the woods).  The garden is in the second field that you come to.
