November 28 @ 9AM

The Conservancy Garden Keepers will be working in the Naturally Kaiwah Demonstration Garden at Night Heron Park on November 28 beginning at 9AM and invite you to join them.

The Conservancy Garden Keepers is a year-round volunteer initiative that keeps Kiawah's citizens connected with nature through Garden Stewardship. Led by Edna Roberds and Pat Pachuk, this group of dedicated volunteers cares for the Naturally Kaiwah Demonstration Garden and its fixtures at Night Heron Park.

Participating as a Garden Keeper is an opportunity to be a steward of one of Kiawah's greatest resources throughout the year. If you have an interest in joining the Garden Keepers, meet us in the Garden on one of our workdays or contact Edna Roberds at ecroberds@hotmail.com.
