Thanks to all of our volunteers who came out for the annual Love Your Park event inCedarParkon May 12. Twelve volunteers weeded and mulched all of the tree pits while others planted 10 flats of annuals donated by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society! Thanks to the cool and rainy weather that followed, park plantings should be off to a great start. Now we need to do our best to protect the plantings. We have temporarily installed yellow cord barriers to discourage park users from pulling or trampling the plantings. Please help us encourage respect for the gardens. If you see adults or children pulling on the trees or disturbing the gardens please do what you can to comment and educate others about the importance of taking care of our community green space. If you would like to help with the gardens and receive notice of future work times, please contact Maureen Tate at theCedarParkphone or e-mail listed in this newsletter.
