Thanks to everyone who helped out this past weekend. We replanted trees and shrubs (which are now enjoying cooler, wetter conditions as they get re-established), weeded the rain garden area, pulled garlic mustard, and cleaned off storm drains.
Please keep an eye out for garlic mustard. This is a critical time for it. Any seeding we can prevent this year will dramatically help us in coming years.

An unfortunate logistical and communication problem resulted in the removal of many trees and bushes that were planted as part of our Earth Day efforts to restore vegetation along High and Overbrook where the sidewalk was replaced. We were unaware that the sidewalk project was not finished.
Fortunately a supervisor on the project noticed the newly planted seedlings, removed them, and temporarily heeled them into some dirt, saving them from getting destroyed as the sidewalk project continued. The seedlings have been moved to the Robinson’s vegetable garden until the project can be completed. At that point we’ll need to replant. It’ll be like having Earth Day twice this Spring.

Join us for another cleanup. Garlic Mustard season is upon us, and we’ll be focusing our efforts on pulling or cutting the blossoms wherever it may be found between Indianola and High. In addition we’ll be looking for people to pick up trash and possibly replant trees and bushes that were removed/rescued from the High/Overbrook sidewalk project.
