This is something that everybody can support. The flier below is an offer to attend a rain barrel workshop at the Library on Monday. If you attend, you can apply for a free rain barrel. This is a free water collection system that you can use to water your garden. Installation is free too. What is not to like about that.
The Frankford Garden Club is rebuilding the community one garden at a time. This is their newsletter for September.
From Janet Bernstein of Friends of Overington Park:
Friends of Overington Park will host it’s Second Annual ‘Art Under the Trees’ event on Saturday September 17th from 12 to 3pm. There will be a children’s Chalk Art Contest, with prizes, Tree Identifying and Mapping for kids and adults who want to join in, Leaf related art projects and games, and refreshments! Please come out and join in the fun! The park is looking great this summer so there is lots of inspiration to get your artistic juices flowing. We found out over this summer that our trees date back to the Civil War era. We need to get them on the map. Can you guess what tree stood watch during 1861? Come out and find the answers. Hope to see you there!
