Children's Garden in Fernwood

How lovely. Word comes from Fernwood of a new children's garden. Here's a message from Leah:

My name is Leah and I am writing with the hope that I can recruit some of you to come and join us this week in the very exciting creation of the Little Acorn Children's Garden. Over the past six months, I have been collaborating with a number of community groups to build a garden at the daycare where I work.  The available site for the garden is an old driveway which has meant a lot of creative thinking about how to transform that space into a vibrant oasis. This has been an amazing process which is finally coming to fruition as we now have gorgeous beds in place that are ready to be filled with soil and planted!!  Over the next week, we will definitely need some people power to move gravel and soil into the beds, and to get them planted!!  I would love some of your help to make this all come together.  If you can make it out, we will be in the garden on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 3:45-6pm.

Come and join us for a bed building and planting extravaganza!

Here is a loose schedule of what will be happening:

Tuesday - Lining beds with poly and filling beds with gravel and soil

Wednesday - Possibly more hauling of soil, Transplanting, Sowing

Thursday - Planting and Transplanting

Friday - Site Clean-up and Celebration!

What a wonderful idea. The address is 2629 Victor St. Email Leah if you can make it at Leah Seltzer leah.seltzer@gmail.com. I'll definitely be going to help out.
