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!

The latest: free sod, compost news and pit tour
Hey everybody, A couple things:
1) We have been offered some free grass/sod!
Village Alliance is sponsoring a street festival that will have a
temporary lawn with 1,000 sq. ft. of sod out on the street. If anyone
from CGC be interested in picking up the free sod once the festival
concludes at 5pm on 6/15 and 6/22, let me know as they would like to
have an idea of how much they can unload. (firstname.lastname@example.org) ... The pick up site would be West 8th Street & MacDougal.
2) the composter is up and running at 8th & 22nd. Right side is
cooking nicely and almost ready to be used. The left side is empty and
ready for your discarded fruit, veggies, leaves, plants, coffee grounds
and brown paper. Small pieces please. They break down faster! Thanks
again to Phyllis Waisman for getting it for us. We've had it about a
year without incident. So far so good!
3) I'd like to get
everyone together for a garden club tour sometime in July, say a
Saturday morning on the 13th, 20th or 27th. If anyone feels strongly
about any of those dates let me know. Flower Power! Missy
