Individuals who want to learn about volunteer opportunities in their community, can find over 100 different opportunities through United Way of North Central Massachusetts' Volunteer Center, Community Builders. This week's featured opportunity: School Grounds Gardening and Maintenance, Groton, Mass.

Groton Community School is fortunate to have a beautifully designed playscape. Varying themes make this playscape notably special, from the meadow, to the bird blind and gazebo garden. Installed nearly 10 years ago our playscape over the years is in need of larger maintenance overhauls than our school's families can manage. Overall we have made great strides in maintaining this picture perfect landscape. It is only when a careful eye looks closely that one might see our need for additional maintenance.
