Water conservation starts with education, says City of Colville

Manpower needed at community garden

April 16, 2014

It’s time for folks to step up to the rows.
The Colville Community Garden (CCG) is in dire need of some volunteers to assist with planting preparation and maintenance. Whether it’s weeding, fer¬tilizing (organically, that is), watering, hauling soil, etc., and whether people rent a plot or not, assistance is much desired.
“We would really appreciate the help,” says Mike Kisman, Manager of the garden, “You don’t have to be a gardener yourself. Whether you rent a plot or not, we’re in serious need of people who are wiling to contribute their time.”

The bus, which belongs to the Mary Walker School District, was traveling along the 4100 block of Cemetery Road when it left the roadway and ended up on its side.
