Planting at Glenway Prairie Sites Scheduled for Ma y 18


Sandy Stark, DMNA Bike Path Chair, sends a friendly reminder that the 3rd Saturday work party is coming up soon (May 18).   Sandy will pick up two packed flats of sun and shade plants that morning and deliver them to the Glenway/SW Path intersection (behind Glenway Golf Course; parking on Glen or Gregory) for digging into various spots.

The work party will also likely do some general garden tidying up, but mostly planting and watering. This is the fun part!  Start time is 10am.

Sandy will bring some digging tools and extra gloves, as well as the famous chocolate chip oatmeal cookies from Mary Cook’s Garden at the Hilldale Farmer’s Market.  The water fountain across the street is ON, by the way.

Check out the website (www.dmna.org) for information on the new effort to clear garlic mustard and other invasives out of the neighborhood woods between the golf course and the cemetery. Go to SW Path, or look for the sidebar on lower left to find “Glenway Woods Garlic Mustard Removal”.

By the way, for garlic you mustard weed warriors or those seeking to learn more about this interesting and challenging plant, check out the Garlic Mustard Challenge web site.  It has information on all things garlic mustard.
