CMH Gardening Team needs volunteers

The Chinmaya Mission Houston Gardening Team works hard to maintain our beautiful premises. While we have engaged with professional service providers for basic mowing, edging, trimming etc. it is our volunteers who do the planting, watering, weeding, etc. to enhance our gardens.
The gardening team works every Saturday morning from 7:00 AM to 10:00 AM
This year’s hard freeze has caused tremendous damage to the plants, and a lot of extra help is needed. If you can help please email Santosh Mulayath at and provide your contact information.
