Dear Neighbors and Friends,
We have begun moving plants and hardscaping out of the Baltic Street Community Garden to make way for the destruction of the current garden and P.S. 133 school building. (Click here for the story.)
Many of our most beautiful plants came to us as gifts and cuttings from people in the neighborhood, and we hope that we can give back by distributing them throughout the area, for your treepits, front and backyards and decks.
Pictured below are some of the plants we’d like to find homes for. We have many more, including day lillies, echinacea, the amazing trumpet vine and wisteria vine, periwinkle, and bridal wreath. There are several trees as well. Click here for a fuller inventory.
We’d also like to share tools (rakes, shovels, trowels, a wheelbarrow) and the pavers that make up the garden’s walkways.
The carefully tended soil, rich with frequent additions of compost from our own bins, can enrich many gardens, containers and tree pits.
The Baltic Street gardeners invite you to come on Saturday, Oct. 17, and Sunday, Oct. 18, from 11-5. The entrance is on Baltic Street, just east of Fourth Avenue. We have some containers, but if you can, bring your own.
