June Garden News

Sun. 6/3, 1pm-4pm *RAIN OR SHINE!*

After a VERY busy May, we are ready to construct the final planting beds in the garden. We may be working in the rain, so be sure to dress for the weather. Light snacks will be provided.

Sat. 6/30, 10am

Bring some food to share with your neighbors. We will do some light work in the garden and then take some time to celebrate our accomplishments!

Thank You

Even though we've only been working on the garden for a short time, we've already received substantial help from some great organizations. We'd like to especially thank Weaver's Way, Home Depot, and Philadelphia Green. Their generosity has made it possible for us to purchase materials, tools and flowers for our garden.

Above all, we'd like to thank
every person who has given in some way to our neighborhood efforts. Together, we have been able to make something beautiful for everyone to enjoy. This garden would not have grown without you!

May garden news

Hi Garden Friends,

Our 1st annual Mother's Day sale was a great success! We raised over $200 for the Hicks Garden and other neighborhood greening efforts. Special thanks to everyone who helped out. We met a lot of neighbors and were able to tell many people about community happenings West of Broad.

MORE GOOD NEWS: The Hicks Garden has also received a grant from the Weavers Way Co-op in Mt Airy. With these funds, we will make more flower beds in the front of the garden, most likely in June.

AND FINALLY... Our next workday is Saturday, May 19 @ 10am (raindate: Sunday). We'll be finishing up our vegetable bed and doing a few other projects. Free snacks and water to participants!

Above all, thank you for your ongoing support. Without you, this would not have been possible. Look at all we've accomplished so far!

Hope to See You on Saturday!
