On Tuesday, June 26, 2018 from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm, we will meet at Savage Mini-Park (on Belgrade Avenue across from the Roslindale Village T Commuter Rail Station) to do our usual gardening work at Savage and at the T Station hillside across from Savage.
We’re delighted to have anyone who wants to get their hands dirty join us to keep these public green spaces looking good.
RG&C is grateful to everyone who chose to buy plants available at our 2018 Plant Sale. RG&C raised money that will support ongoing efforts to maintain attractive green spaces in Roslindale Square and purchasers got great plants that have a history of thriving in local gardens.
Our Gardening efforts in Roslindale Square continue – this time at Taft Hill Park across from Wallpaper City on Sunday, June 10, 2018 from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm.
We’ll be doing our usual weeding, deadheading and anything else that needs doing.
And, as usual, everyone is invited to help out – no prior experience needed.
EXCITING NEWS! The third 2018 Gardening in the Square (GitS) session in Roslindale Square HAS MOVED from Taft Hill Park to Lee Hill Road Pocket Park across from Healy Field.
The time has not changed: it’s still on Tuesday, May 29, 2018 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM.
We’ll do weeding and general clean-up required at the park.
As always, no past experience is necessary – anyone willing to help out is welcome.
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.
