Gardening/weeding is great exercise, with built-in social distancing! Wear sunscreen, a hat, long sleeves and sturdy shoes. Bring work gloves and tools such as a weed whacker, hoe, and garden clippers if you have them. Water and snacks will be provided. You can learn some history of Albuquerque in the process.

When: Monday, September 7, 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Where: Historic Fairview Cemetery, 700 Yale Blvd. SE – Enter through Fairview Memorial Park, proceed east to cemetery office, turn left and continue north into historic cemetery area. Look for a white Subaru Outback and check with Gail Rubin before starting work.
