We have scheduled a meeting for the next Community Garden update for next Tuesday, May 1st from 7-8 p.m. at the Cardinal Ritter House located at 1218 East Oak Street. It is across the street from S. Ellen Jones Elementary.
Some areas we will cover are garden needs and progress thus far. Also, will we be planting this spring? Yes, I believe so. Keep New Albany Clean and Green has helped us make great progress on the garden site.
“The Community Garden site at 707 Culbertson Avenue has been leveled and top soil put in place. Thank you Globe Mechanical for donated use of equipment, Earth First for the donated topsoil, and Irv Stumler for donated time and equipment operation! Now to get the raised planting beds constructed.”
I would like to thank them by inviting everyone to the Spring Clean Up this weekend. Saturday morning at 8 a.m. workers will be gathering at Main Source Bank downtown and collaborating in a community event to clean and plant downtown. Please join me in giving back and helping New Albany shine. Last year I helped with the fall clean up and the kids and I have loved seeing the plants we planted last for months.
If you have any questions please feel free to email or call.
