On Thursday, March 24, 2016, Roslindale Green & Clean will present, “Armchair Garden Tour, A Breath of Summer in the Middle of Winter.”
This presentation, at Roslindale House (120 Poplar Street, a short walk down Poplar Street from the Roslindale Branch Library), will offer a photo tour of Sarah P. Duke Gardens at Duke University, North Carolina.
The program will begin at 7:00 pm.
Admission is free. Light refreshments will be served.
Join us for a pleasant evening reminding us that winter is not forever.
While Roslindale Green & Clean works on keeping public green spaces in Roslindale attractive, Roslindale residents are making and keeping their own properties attractive.
Residents from our community won seven awards for their gardens (gardens in bold were on the Roslindale Green & Clean 2015 Garden Tour) in the Mayor’s 2015 Garden Contest which invited gardeners across the city to enter:
First Place: Ngaio Schiff, Roslindale
Second Place: Cheryl Crawford, Roslindale
Small Yard Garden
Third Place: Katherine Stevenson, Roslindale
Medium Yard Garden
First Place: Kenneth Aubert, Roslindale
Large Yard Garden
First Place: Joyce and Richard Chalfin, Roslindale
Third Place: Sandra Kautz, Roslindale
Vegetable or Herb Garden
First Place: Aspasia Bakolas, Roslindale.
Our congratulations to everyone across the city who received recognition in this annual contest and to everyone who submitted their garden to the contest. You don’t have to receive an award to know how much you enjoy your own garden.
Our thanks to Landscape Express on American Legion Highway in Roslindale for their generous donation of 3 cubic yards of (Black Forest) mulch delivered to Taft Hill green space in Roslindale Village. Thanks to City Councilor Tim McCarthy, who requested the donation on behalf of RG&C. But we couldn’t have put the mulch to good use without all the RG&C volunteers who shoveled and spread it at Taft Hill Terrace and Savage Mini Park. Thanks to all involved, both sites look great!
Our volunteers started with this:
Through their efforts,
the mulch now enhances the look of the Taft Hill green space, helps keep down weeds, and helps retain moisture in the soil for the plantings.
Landscape Express’ generous donation let RG&C mulch a large swath of Savage Minipark along with all of the Taft Hill green space.
