During the past few years there has been a rapid growth of mint, invasive weeds, and even some bushes in the area around the gardens. They have grown into the fence and have caused deterioration of the fencing. Those plants and other detritus, including discarded posts, needs to be removed before any fence can be installed at the gardens, and the grounds in general need a good cleanup. For that purpose, we hope to get as many gardeners as possible together this coming Saturday, May 5, at 9:30 am for a garden clean-up work party. If anyone can bring weed whacker, clippers, rake, hoe, etc. to assist in the effort, that would be much appreciated. With a decent turnout, it shouldn’t take more than an hour. The ground may be rather soggy, so wear appropriate footwear.
A second work party is being scheduled for Saturday morning May 12, also at 9:30, to put up the seasonal fence and install hoses. Again, assuming a decent turnout it shouldn’t take more than an hour.
Please plan to come to one or both of the work parties. In case of rain, they will be rescheduled. Please check the garden webpage (www.hanovergardens.org) for updates.
