We learned recently that a community garden on a city-owned lot was ruined in a mowing incident. While this unfortunate situation is an isolated one, we hope to avoid future mishaps by recommending that everyone create a sign indicating their lot as a community-managed green space. To help facilitate this, we’re hosting a free sign-making event at the Poppleton Children’s & Community Garden, 14 N. Schroeder St., on Saturday, November 9th at 10am. We will provide tools, materials, and construction help, so please come out, make a sign, and show your support!
We are also looking for donations of any extra materials you may have, including:
- · Outdoor paint – spray or gallon paint
- · Pressure-treated wood – 2x4 or 2x6 pieces
- · Nails/screws
- · Stencils
- · Paintbrushes
Unless you prefer to drop them off ahead of time (contact us to arrange a drop-off time), materials can be brought to the event. Please let us know what you’ll be bringing so we can plan accordingly. Your donations are greatly appreciated!
If you plan on attending, please RSVP as soon as possible so we can make sure to have enough supplies for everyone. You can reach us at 410-448-5663, ext. 120 (Tara) or ext. 122 (John). You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. We’re more than happy to answer any questions you may have as well.
Feel free to spread the word! Thank you so much for your support!
