A big thank you to everyone who came out on Saturday for our 2019 Spring Cleanup and Earth Day Celebration! The day was mostly sunny and not too cold – and there were plenty of helping hands.
Gardeners, playground parents and kids, and neighbors came by to take part in cleaning up the park and getting the garden ready for the growing season by cleaning up beds, hooking up hoses, and spreading woodchips along the paths.
Gardener Michael Bradlee took the lead in preparing beds for a host of new blueberry and blackberry bushes which will be planted along the garden fence in the coming weeks and Margie Smith read stories and helped kids plant their own seeds to take home.
We would also like to thank the the Providence Department of Parks, the Partnership for Providence Parks, the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, and their community partners for providing us with a small grant to purchase supplies as well as providing snacks and buttons for our volunteers!
