  • Fall Community Clean Up

    • 9am - 12 noon, Saturday, October 22

      • All are invited to a fall clean-up at Center Park. This event is an excellent opportunity for informal gardening conversations as Massachusetts Master Gardeners will be joining us to plant bulbs and advising on other tasks as we prepare the garden for winter. Other tasks include, but are not limited to, raking, picking up sticks and moving wood chips onto pathways. Bring gloves, and water. Also handy would be rakes, loppers, pruners, buckets, and tarps if you have them.
