Help Make The Avenue Beautiful This Sunday!



In the spring, the Crow Hill Community Association led a troop of locals in beautifying Franklin Avenue by picking up trash and planting tree boxes (photos above). This Sunday, October 25th, they're at it again with "Plant a Daffodil Day," preparing the little islands of green in our midst for spring by planting bulbs. The event will kick off at 9:00 AM in front of Bristen's (where I had a spectacular brunch on Sunday--just sayin'). Here's the information straight from CHCA:

PICK UP A SHOVEL AND MAKE FRANKLIN AVE. GREEN FOR SPRING!


CROW HILL COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION

GO GREEN

Sunday October 25th, Plant a Daffodil Day for Spring

Join your neighbors as we plant daffodil bulbs on Franklin Avenue. In the spring, watch the flowers that we planted bloom!

From 9:00 a.m. to the last bulb gets planted, volunteers will:

loosen soil in tree pits

plant daffodil bulbs

move some planters


Wear clothing and shoes that you don't mind getting some dirt on. If you can, bring

a hand cultivator, trowel, shovel or a just bring something to dig with.


WE WILL MEET IN FRONT OF BRISTEN'S EATERY

  1. Hey there,

    I'm a journalist who is covering Crown Heights for the NYCitynewsservice.com.

    This past week I've been focusing on the areas local history, specifically Crow Hill. I attended a CHCA meeting and have been talking to local business owners and residents about the history and the future of the neighborhood.

    I just published a post concerning the changing nature of Crow Hill.
