Pitchforks (and hydrant wrenches) aloft!

Flower Power! We are neighbors who are interested in bringing some botanical beauty to the bike-lane
tree pits so we have persuaded the city to allow us to garden there unimpeded. Anyone is welcome to
join at any level of involvement. There are no dues and no formal meetings; Just a desire to keep
Chelsea tree-lined and flower-filled. Join us!

  1. The author of "Garden Your City" has offered members of the Chelsea Garden Club a discounted price of $15 for the book. She grew up in Hell's Kitchen and was a Citizen Pruner and city gardener. The Garden Your City Facebook page is https://facebook.com/pages/Garden-Your-City/244149063996. If you're interested in getting a copy of the book, please send a $15 check to Tarn Farm LLC, 11 Maggie May Way, Cold Spring, NY 10516.

  2. I am in search of buying some sod for my wives garden. If you know where I can get the best of the best, let me know.

    1. Sorry I don't know. We occasionally get offered sod and then I post a notice but frankly, our gardens are so small, we don't have much use for it. Good luck
