We will be removing sod and preparing planting holes for about 60 trees and shrubs. Many hands make light work! Bring your friends and family for a fun day helping to create this community orchard. Most trees will be planted the following week.
Bring shovels and work glo...ves.
Bring a snack. We will provide refreshments. The 17th is also St. Patricks day so feel free to stay for as short or as long a time as you wish.
The orchard is located along Burroughs Creek Trail off of Garfield st. Here is a link to the Google map. On the map a drainage ditch is incorrectly labeled as Garfield, Garfield is actually to the south. note the green arrow: http://maps.google.com/maps?q=38.959309%2C-95.22636&ll=38.959511%2C-95.226228&spn=0.001599%2C0.002411&num=1&t=h&z=19
Please do not park on Garfield st. It is a narrow street with many driveways and we don't want to inconvenience the neighbors. Park along Delaware or at the playground at 15th and Burroughs Creek. Riding a bike or walking would be a great way to get there.
Thanks! we'll see you then.
