Indian River Road Garden Report

We had a great day for our spring gardening event at the Oaklette Bridge on Indian River Road this morning.   A big thank you to all the volunteers.  

The turnout was a bit disappointing but the nine volunteers who came out did an extraordinary job to make our neighborhood look great.   The team worked on the gardens on all four corners of the bridge and along the newly planted trees on the bridge approach.   Together we mowed, trimmed, pruned, weeded, and spread 58 bags of mulch in the four planters, in the four garden plots, and along the new treeline (on the north side).    We also planted new knock-out roses, verbena, and annuals in the garden plots.   The Black-Eyed Susans are going to be blooming soon.   The trees we planted last month are doing well.  One holly died, but the other 36 trees seem to be acclimating well. 

We do need volunteers to help tend the gardens over the summer.   So if you want to help out, drop us a line at info@friendsofindianriver.org.
