Trees, Lumber and Another Kind of Green

Uh-one, uh-two, uh-TREE
We have some dwarf fruit trees ready to be planted, and some cleared space along our southeastern fence to welcome them. All we need are some willing hands (and strong backs). Please email Cathy Carver to coordinate.

The things we do for lumber
The garden can qualify for more free lumber from GreenThumb if one of our members can attend a workshop in the Bronx on Thursday night, April 21, 5:30 p.m.-7. The location is just steps from the 2/5 stop at West Farms Square/East Tremont, so getting there and back is more a matter of time than difficulty.  Please email Andrea Kannapell if you can attend.

For more info, visit GreenThumb.

Another kind of green
We really really really need a Fundraising Coordinator. This is NOT grant writing (unless you want to). It’s helping staff the table and handling the money from our May 1 plant sale, and doing same for our NYC Marathon bake sale. Gardeners who cannot make the usual work days might especially want to consider contributing this way — it’s crucial, and it’s contained to a very few events. Please email gardencoordinator@wsgarden.org to discuss whether this is the right fit for you.

And now, some eye candy from the first Garden Work Day on April 10th.
