A half dozen dedicated volunteers had wonderful weather to work on the planters at the corner so Indian River Bridge today. We removed bags and bags of weeds from all four planters, including Japanese Honeysuckle, English Ivy, Phragmites, and one small Chinese Privet tree. The team also spruced up the two gardens we planted in the fall on the eastbound side of the bridge.
This was all in preparation for our next outing on May 4th when we'll plant two more gardens on the westbound side of the bridge. Our plans include Muhly Grasses, Knock-out Roses, and Azaleas. We hope you can grab your gardening gloves and come out and join us on that Saturday.
Other upcoming events on our calendar include May 9th when Vickie Green will speak to our group about River Friendly Gardening at our monthly meeting and June 1st when we will participate in Clean the Bay Day by cleaning up around the streamside in the park at Rokeby and Providence.
