Sustainable Gardening Days

In January 2011 over 300 native plants and grasses were planted in the southern hillside of McKinley Square. 

Thanks to the strong rains, and the diligent work by some members of the community, the plants are doing well. But to overcome years of entrenched invasive weeds, the new plants will need some help competing.  

A sustainable garden group will be working every 2nd Sunday at 10am at the south hillside native planting area. Come join us, and have an enjoyable Sunday morning. 

Bring gloves, and tools if you have them. Closed toed shoes a must, work boots encouraged.   

If you can't make this event but would like to help out with the native planting effort please feel free to send us an email


Here are some pictures from our April 10, 2011 sustainable gardening day.
