Lend Your Muscle to Parkside!
Saturday, January 4 at 12pm.
By now you've probably seen the new oaks on Parkside Avenue, and you've probably wondered how these five saplings can survive into grand old age. Sure, Pioneer has promised to water them. But who will fend off the errant cars, the distracted pedestrians, the incontinent dogs?
This Saturday, at noon, the Parkside Committee is hosting a tree-guard installation party. The lumber has been donated. The carpentry has been done. But they need your help putting them in the ground.
When? Noon. Where? Parkside Avenue. Dress warmly. Bring gloves, if you have them, and bring a gardening spade, if you have that, and bring your kids, if they want to plant daffodils. One hour of volunteering from you, one century of life for five oak trees. Come on out!
