Community Fall Plants and Bulbs Planting Day
Sept. 15th, Saturday 11-3 PM
A Street

Volunteers needed to come help dig in and plant final fall plantings along the A Street Fence. About 100 plants will be placed along the A Street fence and in empty spots as need around the Tree circles.

In addition to we hope to place about 600 -900 bulbs around the tree circles and along the A Street fence in anticipation of Spring 2013.....the first time we are getting organized to do bulbs at these locations.

We have a limited supply of gardening gloves and tools so if folks can bring their own shovels or gardening trowels please do.

Donations. For those who have walked along the fence all summer and admired the gardening efforts....were asking for the input of some green support in the form of cash money donations to help defray the cost of plantings and related gardening materials....soil and mulch...plus 186 stakes to protect the garden from snow plows in the coming winter.

Soil bag of soil can be $15 dollars per bag. mulch is $10 per bag, 50 bulbs are $15 dollars a bag, individual plants can range from $10 - $25 per plant...So obviously cost all add up ...so donations in any amount are greatly appreciated.  Donations may be directed to:

FPNA
P.O. Box 52122

Denote on memo section for Boston Shines A Street Vines. Your donations in any amount can keep us going greener thru out the year.


Fast Forward to next year 2013.....save time for Boston Shines late April 2013. Looking for team captains and volunteers to focus on various areas of the community so we can expand and make more targeted are gardening efforts thru out the district.....to continue work on A Street Vines and Tree Circles, mulch-plant and care for tree circles on Summer, Melcher and Congress Street. Continue and Expand gardening efforts to the rear of the Channel Center on medallion Avenue.
