By the time 2009 ended, the stretch of Lexington Road between Top Hill and Cross Hill Roads had been thinned of invasive plants and was ready for new vegetation more suitable to the environment and natural to the area.
“Now we are ready for the next phase. It’s time for the fourth phase of our project which requires some early spring planting,” says Councilwoman Tina Ward-Pugh (D-9).
On Saturday, March 6th, the Councilwoman and volunteers will be on hand to plant along the hillside and mulch from 8:30am to 12 noon. In the event of rain, a makeup date has been set for March 13th.
Gloves, water and snacks will be provided during the event. Coffee will be provided by Heine Brothers. Volunteers are needed for a wide range of activities including, digging holes for plants and trees, planting trees and vegetation, spreading mulch and general cleanup.
“If you have them, please bring your wheelbarrow, garden cart and mulch forks,” says Ward-Pugh. “It’s great to see our volunteers bring a community spirit with them to our cleanups and they should be proud of what we have accomplished.”
If you would like to volunteer, contact Councilwoman Ward-Pugh’s office at 574-1109 or email firstname.lastname@example.org . If you would like to see a video of the fall cleanup please visit:
