Volunteers needed to plant rain garden Saturday

June 11th, 2009

More than 20 volunteers recently helped plant rain gardens in the City park. The rain gardens, when complete, are designed to absorb rain water so it absorbs into the ground instead of running into storm drains and eventually into Lake Titloe. Another planting session is scheduled for Saturday.

Here is your LAST CHANCE to help plant the Gaylord Park Rain Gardens! This Saturday morning, June 13th, starting bright and early at 7 a.m. We will be planting in our biggest rain garden! You are invited to come over and join us.

Bring your gardening trowel or a spade or a shovel if you have one, please!

We want to be done by 10 a.m.-11 a.m. at the latest!

The Gaylord Cub Scouts and the Gaylord Girl Scouts, the groups that will be taking care of this massive garden all this summer, will be there. But we (Gaylord Park Board) want to be able to pair each youth with an adult. If we have 40 adults to match the 40 kids, we will have a winning combination and the process of planting all the flowers should go really slick!

Check your calendars and schedules and please, come join us! By August 1st when all 3 of our gardens are looking fabulous, then you will be able to say you were a part of helping to make them a Gaylord park blooming success!
