Garden Club Community Activities

This month, the Garden Club has two important activities happening in the community.

First, on Sunday, April 10 at 1pm we will be gathering at the Bohemia Community Gardens (on R Street) to pot plants for the upcoming plant sell. Please come dressed for the weather, bring digging hand tools, and Clean/Sterilized 1-gallon pots (if you have them available). We are preparing for the May plant sell which is our major fund raiser for the year.

In Thursday, April 28 from 10am-1pm we will be having a clean-up party at the All America City Square (aka Opal Park). Volunteers should bring hand tools for weeding and digging, kneeling mats, buckets, shovels or whatever they're comfortable using and working with. We will be planting a new tree for the center round bed, and hauling/shoveling soil and mulch. Coffee will be provided. Plus clean pots will be available to transplant any plants the get displaced by the tree.
