Do You Have a Green Thumb? Help Maintain the Beauty of Our Community
Updated: Dec 5, 2020
We are regularly in of need volunteer their time to maintain the beauty that Mrs Duke and numerous local volunteers have created.
These gardens encompass approximately 1,000 square feet throughout nine planting beds. They include native perennial shrubs and flowers. There were installed in 2005 and are located on Jones Station Road between Ruxshire Drive and Mago Vista Road, directly across from the Harting Farms community.
A few local residents have adopted one or more of the planting beds volunteering their time and labor to maintain each small area. Since these plants are mature and well established, each garden bed parent need only maintain their bed (weeding and pruning) about 3-4 times per year.
These gardens meet a very practical aesthetic need to our community, bringing visual beauty and lovely fragrances to this area. Residents, especially those walking by, are able to enjoy birds, insects, and pollinators amongst the nice plantings.The mission of the Gardens is to beautify the communities we live in, and bring more of nature back, not allowing weeds and invasive plants to grow wild and unkempt.
The ideal caretaker would have knowledge of native plants; the time, tools, and energy to invest in garden maintenance, and work with and train volunteers as they maintain one of the nine planting beds.
Rich Warden will be available to work with and train a new caretaker. If you would like to make a significant contribution to the beautification of our community please contact Dave Bishop, MVACA President at firstname.lastname@example.org.
