As your correspondent returned from his morning walk, he found Jonathan Landsman, the Promenade Gardener, and a Parks Department crew, unloading plants from a truck. Some of these, along with bulbs, are to be planted tomorrow (Saturday, October 15) , which happens to be It’s My Park Day. If you would like to lend a hand, Jonathan asks that you join him at the Montague Street entrance to the Promenade at 9:00 a.m. Work will be done by 11:00 a.m.
If you’re interested in helping in the Promenade gardens through the fall season, you can meet Jonathan and the rest of the crew every Tuesday morning at 9:30 at the Montague Street entrance for a couple of hours of satisfying work. For more information, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
For the really energetic, tomorrow offers two opportunities for gardening work. As we previously reported, the folks who tend the Poplar Street Community Garden are looking for volunteers to help from noon until 3:00 p.m. So, you can help on the Promenade in the morning, grab a quick lunch (perhaps at the Tutt Cafe, which is on the way from the Promenade to the Poplar Street Garden), then pitch in at Poplar Street in the afternoon. You’ll get some good exercise, and feel very virtuous.
