PEACE will provide additional manpower to dig holes and plant around the Library for added beauty. Xocodiva will provide refreshments and music, and water will be available. Bring tools, such as hole diggers, shovels, forked spades and gardening gloves if you can.
Color your world, as Bob Price, director of the lush Vallarta Botanical Gardens, will share valuable info on how the city generously offers its valued citizens trees and flowers to the Garden Club to brighten Vallarta at no cost. You just do the dirty work!
