Work party in the Greenway today for about an hour, starting at 3:00!
We'll do some raking, and if it's not too cold, we can move the roses and remove some bindweed (morning glory) from the chainlink fence.
Brrr & Cheers,

Reminder: Work Party in the Greenway, Sunday Nov 13th, 3:00

Reminder: Work Party in the Greenway, Sunday Nov 13th, 3:00 ...
Come if you can, and no need to RSVP or feel guilty if you can't!
If it's a torrential downpour, we won't go, but if it's nice or even halfway nice, we will.
I'll go over to Magnet in the morning and get a bunch of empty leaf bags.

Work Party next Sunday, November 13th, 3:00!

Hi folks,
We filled many bags with oak leaves today in the Napier Square Greenway ... but when you stand in the Greenway and look up, it seems as if the trees haven't even begun to drop their leaves. So this will be the first of several raking days.
Also we have a couple of rose bushes that need moving and we need to get rid of some pesky morning glory (bindweed).
So please join us if you can, next Sunday, 3:00, probably just for an hour or so. Now that we're back to standard time, it's getting dark at 5:00!
Bring rakes, gardening gloves, etc. We will provide leaf bags.

Hiss! Boo! Bindweed!

Work Party, this Sunday, Nov 6th, 3:00-5:00!

Hi Gardeners,

There's a splendid new rhododendron in the southwest bed, thanks to Pat Davitt, who donated it! (Even if you can't make it to the Work Party, do check the rhodo out on your way through to the Library...)

Last Sunday our intrepid crew put in a LOT of bulbs. We'll have a very cheerful Spring in the Greenway.
We do have a bit of work to do in the meantime, however! Pat has some lily of the valley and snowdrops that we can put in ... and the oaks are beginning to drop leaves, so there's some raking and bagging to do. 
Please join us for a Work Party, this Sunday, Nov 6th, 3:00-5:00 if you can! 
Bring gardening gloves, kneeling pad, trowel, secateurs, or whatever you think you'll need. We have a few rakes and will provide leaf bags.

See you then!
