Garden of the Sun Demonstration Garden

Garden of the Sun is open to the public on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month. MG's can sign up on VMS to open & close. Great way to gain more hours. Always something to do at Garden of the Sun. Our first Saturday we were opened we talked to a dozen folks visiting for the first time.  The Saturdays openings will be a 6 months trial, then will evaluate the public interest to continue being open. Exception in September, GOS will be closed Saturday, Sept 1st and Monday, Sept. 3rd due to the holiday weekend
