In a uniquely University Neighborhood style, Earth Day lives on as our first yard landscape make over continues this Saturday.
We have a dedicated group of students and neighbors joining forces to transform the side yard that faces Watkins Dr. at 228 Nisbet.
There is a final push to clear weeds and to lay down a heavy layer of mulch. We can use any gardening tools you can spare for a few hours. We especially need some hand trowels for the planter bed and some tight areas.
A little lemonade would go a long way I’m sure.
And a special call out to all of you gardeners in the neighborhood. You know who you are:
- You’d like to see more yards looking like yours.
- You have way more plants than you have space for.
- You hate to put your prunings and perfectly good cuttings in green waste.
- You’d be delighted to see some of your favorite plants on display at the garden below.
We’ll be there at 8:30 until 11:30 Saturday, May 21st.
Your invited to take a closer look at your “canvas”. What do you have to share? What would it be like to have a “neighbors for neighbors” garden?
