For many years, our friend Cathy Walsh was the ringleader of the Turtle Boy Urban Gardners, which weeded, planted, and maintained the oval area around the Burnside Fountain.
In the past couple of years, the Common, including the area around the fountain, have experienced a transformation.
We are now ready to continue Cathy’s work — and we would love for you to join us!
On Saturday, May 14, beginning at 10am, we will be weeding and planting the new, larger planting area around the Turtle Boy.
You can help by:
- Coming that day with your gardening gloves and comfortable shoes [FB event]
- Coming on subsequent days with large buckets of water to make sure the new plants get plenty of nourishment!
- Sharing this event with others who might be interested
What a lovely idea. Unfortunately I have to be working at a joint AW/Fitchburg Art Museum that day.
I still think of her whenever I drive by the old Sprout site.
