Tiller and planting help needed.  As you know, Prairie Hills received a grant from the city of Madison to buy two round picnic tables for Lucy Lincoln Hiestand Park.  Now we would like to put some plants around the “picnic area” that’s been created. We need help with either a tiller or someone strong to dig up the sod and earth where we need to plant.  Any takers?  If so, please reply to this email.  Thanks.
