Don’t miss these two great opportunities to fill your yard, garden, or neighborhood with flowers and food:
Burlington Permaculture is holding its Spring 2010 Fruit Tree Giveaway from 4-6 p.m. Sunday, April 25, at the Archibald Neighborhood Garden. Open to all Burlington residents, trees will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. As an added bonus, Burlington Permaculture will be teaching anyone who receives a tree how to plant and care for it! Plants available include: pear, peach, plum, and paw paw trees as well as raspberry plants. Supplies are limited so come early.
Grow Team ONE is continuing the Friends of Burlington Gardens annual plant sale tradition with a Perennial Sale 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, May 8, at Roosevelt Park in Burlington’s Old North End. A beautiful assortment of potted perennials (flowers, herbs, and some surprises!) will be available for just $5 each. Proceeds will be split between Grow Team ONE and Friends of Burlington Gardens to support the development of neighborhood gardens and garden-based education and outreach.
Thinning out your perennials? Have extra 6″, 8″, or 10″ plastic pots? Teams of volunteers will be collecting plants and pots and re-potting donations through May 6. We’ll even help you dig up your plants!
For more information, to donate plants or pots, or to volunteer, please contact Jess Hyman at 598-3139 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
