Spring into love . . . your park

You might still be cleaning up your yard or block after this winter’s storms, but we hope you will take a moment to mark your calendars for Saturday, April 28, 10am to 1pm, to give a little neighborly love to Cloverly Park.
Please join your neighbors and park friends on April 28 as we clear the accumulated storm debris, tend the park’s young trees, and prepare the gardens and play areas for summer. There are plenty of tasks for hands of all ages and abilities.
One such task is clearing invasive vegetation from the park’s unique “pathway garden” and replanting with native perennials, a project supported with a helpful recent grant from Weavers Way Environmental Committee.
Those with a long history in the neighborhood recall the tremendous effort made to pull Cloverly out of neglect and turn it into a neighborhood asset.  It takes ongoing time, energy, and resources to keep the park looking beautiful and welcoming. We know that weekends are precious time for family, friends, chores, and worship, and we appreciate those who make the effort to come out on these special service days, when having many hands makes certain tasks easier, even possible.
So please plan to come out and join us! We will supply work gloves, tools, water and snacks. Bring yourselves and a neighbor or friend!
In the meantime, check out TreePhilly’s yard tree giveaway: http://treephilly.org/registration-spring-giveaway-season-open/ and save the date for Friends of Cloverly Park’s annual Plant Sale (perennials, small shrubs, veggies), Sunday, May 6 (details to follow).
See you in the park!
