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!

We had a very informative meeting March 8. I wish more of you could have attended because it is so nice to see everyone and share our gardening adventures! Thanks again to Andy Fliegel for opening the doors of Callen-Lorde and hosting our group.
Now onward:
The Lower East Side Ecology Center is generously offering us help and resources (compost, mulch and volunteers) for the Eighth Avenue pits. They will hold an event TENTATIVELY on Saturday morning, April 19. So mark you calendars and tell everyone you know to come out and help. This will go a long way toward ensuring your gardens are lush and verdant this summer.
(For those on Ninth Ave. we may have another event but if you come out and help your 8th Ave. neighbors on the 19th, you can get a bag of compost!)
Flower Power,

  1. After the Chelsea Garden Club cleans and cultivates the 8th Ave. bike lane tree pits, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is having a plant sale on Thursday, May 1st, from 9 A.M. to noon. The entrance fee is $10 for adults and $5 for those 65+.
