Event reminder: Compost, Clean up, Plant Sale, Garden Tour................
Below are a list of events and opportunities to get work hours - please contact me if you have any questions.
Compost will be delivered May 5 in the morning - 4 truck loads - see earlier email for all details - we still need help……..
May 6 is a City Wide clean up - Love Your Block. We are looking for folks to help collect and put out all the trash that seems to be collecting already around the gardens - large lengths of wood and other assorted containers. This is also a great time if anyone has come to realize there are things in their garden they want to remove - everything is picked up by NOON so consider comeing out and helping.
It is also the opening day for South End Little League - the parade down Shawmut Ave starts at around 10 AM
Trustees planned events in our garden - we will need garden members to provide help during these events - which you will of course be credited for.
- May 20, Plant Sale -
- this year it is being moved from the Ben Franklin Institute to Berkeley and will be set up in the Common Spaces.
- June 17, South End Garden Tour -
- we are again on the tour
- we need gardeners to be in their gardens or around the common areas ready to talk about how much you love to garden
- if you have an idea of something you’d like to sell - Berkeley T shirts, water, bake sale,
- if you want to spend the day painting pictures - taking photos - really anything could work.
- You will be credited your planning time and time in the garden.
- August 16, The Moth/PBS/Podcast Garage program <https://themoth.org/radio-hour/live-in-boston>
