Garden-On Team Looking for Planting Help – Sunday, Oct 16, 2 – 6 pm

“Healing nature one native plant at a time” Leo DaSilva

We need a hand. Actually, many hands. 

 Join us Sunday, October 16th anytime from  2-6 pm

We need to get trees, shrubs and plants in the ground soon!  Can you help for a couple of hours? Bring the kids and hand tools if you have them.  We’ll have beverages, donuts and a corn hole game!  Contact Ruth Silver at  

Why are we planting natives? Because they are one of the easiest actions you can take to care for our planet.  They support a healthy ecosystem by attracting more pollinators, i.e. bees, butterflies and provide habitat for birds and wildlife.  They do not require additional watering, thus conserving our precious and vanishing resource, water, nor do they require pesticides or artificial fertilizers. And they help mitigate the effects of climate change by filtering pollutants from groundwater and removing carbon from the atmosphere and storing it in their roots. Btw, our gardens have been recognized by the city and we received an award from Tower Hill!
