The gardening team met on Tues. 3/4 at Ship Shape USA. We had 16 members present. We discussed the upcoming clean up day at the Community Garden set for March 22nd at 10AM and the day of service offered by the LDS Church in Pollock Pines on 4/26. The men from the church have offered their labor to build or repair whatever we need at the Community Garden.
We will have a work party at Pinewood Elementary School in the Memory Garden on Monday, 4/14 at 10AM. This is during their spring break. We will rake leaves, weed as needed and spread mulch. We have also scheduled a final clean up at the library on Tues., May 6 at 10AM. We will be cleaning up the front parking lot, cutting back the Hypericum ground cover alongside the parking area and raking pine needles throughout. Finally, Tom and Nancy Schultz discussed their plans for planting annuals in the Sly Park Lake entrance planters. They will advise if planting will be done in late April or early May. I will be sending out reminder emails to those who volunteered for each project as it gets closer. Please mark your calendars for these dates.
