We Picked Up Compost, Mulch + Perennials for the Garden + Play Area

18 Oct


IMG_5525On Sunday Deb, Denise, Benji & Mike drove to the Gowanus Canal Conservancy’s Compost & Plant Sale. We got: 10 (.75 cubic ft) bags of compost; 3 pots of little blue stem grass; 4 pots of switch grass; 1 trumpet honeysuckle seedling; 2 Mountain Mint seedlings and 6 bags of free wood chips (the most we could schlepp). Cost of the car rental and materials was $265.

If you haven’t yet contributed to the CV Garden Annual Fundraiser, now is a great time! We’re collecting money through the end of October. You can leave cash or checks (made out to CVOI) with the office in 215 Adams or with Deb Van Wetering’s doorman (225 Adams). IMG_5534All garden members are asked to contribute 3 bags of mulch/wood chips, which help the plants and the soil but also acts as child safety surfacing. You can pick up free wood chips from Greenwood Cemetery or buy bagged wood chips from Bruno’s Home Center (on Court St.) or Lowes and have them delivered. While we hope that management will bring in a wood chipper after Christmas for a CV mulch fest, mulch is needed year round. Thank you.
