Though it may be chilly, it’s time to get your green thumb throbbing. Bay Improvement Group is hosting its annual cleanup and planting at its community garden locations throughout the area this Sunday. BIG is inviting neighbors to join them – and bring tools if possible – to clean up and plant bulbs at its Adopt-a-Highway locations along the Sheepshead Bay Belt Parkway overpasses. Cleanup starts at 9:00 a.m. sharp, meeting at Sheepshead Bay Road and Shore Parkway, and bagels and coffee will be served free to all volunteers.
The program is run by Richie, who told us previously of the dire need for new volunteers for the activity. The group has maintained the gardens for several years now, but as time has passed the members have teetered off. Richie says he needs some new blood to help out, so all those who kvetched at last week’s midweek photo of the garbage in Sheepshead Bay – get out there and help make a difference! And if you can’t make it Sunday, then give Richie a call at (347) 631-9551 since he still needs help for the ongoing efforts to keep the Bay clean.
