Ready to put their new gardening knowledge to work everyone rolled up their sleeves to get the big job done.
Although the park construction isn't complete yet, Rita and Ronan help to accomplish the goal of planting 150 crocus, daffodil, and muscari bulbs to bloom in the spring. Thank you Anne Gordon and the Boys & Girls Club children along with the Barnard Place families for making this a wonderful event. We look forward to sharing the fruits of our labor with the community early next year!
Big thanks to Keep Massachusetts Beautiful for providing the bulbs for this event and the South Boston Community Development Foundation for their major support of the Barnard Place Park and Edgerley Family South Boston Boys & Girls Club gardening program!
Thank you David Nagle and the South Boston Community Development Foundation for supplying the park's rich vegetation.
The trees, shrubs and plants will bring much-needed beauty to the area and provide a teaching opportunity for the Barnard Place Park-Edgerley Family South Boston Boys & Girls Club gardening program.
