Plants are beginning to grow!
The Peony Bed is in bloom and the blossoms are magnificent right now. Perennials and annuals throughout the Park are beautiful and everyone needs to take a walk through the Park. The inner circle of the Rose Garden is planted with many vibrant roses and we can expect the outer circles to really start filling out within the next few weeks. Volunteers have been hard at work preparing plants for sale, cutting grass and tending to the gardens.
Regular work parties are held every Tuesday and Friday morning @ 9:00 am. If you are interested in volunteering, please stop by and chat with us at this time.
We are always looking for some extra hands to help maintain the Park - for information on volunteering at the Botanic Park, please visit Volunteer Opportunities
