Pennsylvania Horticultural Society Garden Tenders Work Day
Yes, this Thursday (May31st) from 5:30 to 8:30pm, Sally McCabe and her PHS Garden Tenders will be meeting on Overington Street (the block between Penn St and Leiper St, one block from the Library), where they will assist classmates and Frankford Garden Club members to fix up a new Garden on the block.
What needs to be done? Clean weeds from the patio area, clean out trash from a back ivy-covered corner, cut down several young mulberry saplings, cut back vines, put up some string or wire for wisteria to grow on, break or cut up a huge but very decayed tree trunk, and if there is time, dig a new flower bed
What do we need? Shovels, trash bags, brown paper bags, loppers, rakes.
The Frankford Garden Club will supply gloves, hand pruners, tree saw, a garden claw, any plants or seeds you have extra.
This is a potluck affair, so please bring a snack or drink to share! The Garden Club will provide paper goods.
