Transplant with us! Sunday, May 4th, 3-5pm!

26 Apr

Remember way back in March when we planted seedlings in the community room?  The time to transplant is May 4th from 3-5pm!
Seedlings ready to transplant 2014!
While we’re at it, we’re calling the weekend of Saturday, May 3rd and Sunday May 4th, our CV Play Area MulchFest:  it’s time to bring in new mulch for the new season. *See UPDATE At Bottom of Post* Whether you want to become a member our garden (which requires you to bring in 2-3 bags of mulch) or you’re simply a family that enjoys (or plans to enjoy) our playground equipment (for which mulch is our safety surfacing), we need your help!

Greenwood Cemetery mulch

Greenwood Cemetery Mulch Pile

You can buy mulch, or if you’re up for an adventure and have a car (or a friend with a car), you can load up on free mulch from the pile at Greenwood Cemetery.  You can ask at the main entrance, but the mulch pile is down the tiny road to the left IMMEDIATELY after you pass by the entrance station.  Drop what you bring inside the play area (along the garden fence is best) and we’ll spread it everywhere that needs it when we’re transplanting late Sunday afternoon! UPDATE, FROM Ansley, 10am Sunday: From Ansley, who stopped by Greenwood this am: Reminder: entrance at 25th st and 5th Ave.  Note mulch is low — but you can get a surprising amount off “mulch field.”  It’s not really a pile. . . There is a shovel you can use, or there was just now.

    Thanks Ansley! If anyone is interested in contributing mulch, but doesn’t/can’t get to Green Wood — pls note that Bruno’s (Hardware on Court St.) will deliver bags on Saturdays. Thx. -Denise
