And from the Roger That Garden (Rogers and Park):
Long time no hear, but we haven't gone anywhere! Please join us this upcoming Saturday, August 25th from 11:30 - whenever. The garden is lush, the bees are happy, and the monarchs are on their way! However, there's a lot of weeding, pruning, and dead heading to do. Not to mention some painting (for much needed signs- we gotta advertise, yah know?) and a very special planting project! Our friends at the High Line have generously donated two small trees - a native Juniper and Lindera. Thanks, friends at the High Line.
We can also harvest (although I gave all the Okra to a really nice senior citizen lady who walked by) and talk about future garden plans - cause it's your green space too!
Bring pruners, bug spray, and snacks if you got em. We've got gloves, trowels, cultivators, garbage bags, shovels and more.
