Library Garden Planting is August 26 - Volunteers Needed

(July 30, 2006) The south garden at the Steele Creek Branch Library has been reworked and is ready for new plants. Volunteers are needed on Saturday, August 26 beginning at 8:30 am to plant about 75 or 80 shrubs. Please bring a shovel, a bucket, and possibly something to help with getting the weeds out. Dress to get down and dirty! Any help would be appreciated.

The Steele Creek Library Association has planned, organized, and paid for much of the preparation work. All you can see now are beds covered with hardwood mulch and walkways covered with cypress chips, but underneath those is a layer of garden soil and a drip sprinkler system. For a special project, children will plant bulbs in the fall.

Realiscape Landscaping Service prepared the beds at a reduced cost and Blue Max Materials donated two loads of garden soil. Childress Klein Properties, developer of RiverGate, also made a contribution.

Donations for plants are needed. $100 will buy a tree. $25  will buy a bush, $10 or $15 will buy  perennials.  Any amount would be welcome! Supporters also hope to get a Garden Committee organized to keep it up.

If you would like to contribute to the garden effort, please send your tax deductible check, payable to Steele Creek Library Association, to:

Steele Creek Library Association
PO Box 38218
Charlotte, NC 28278-8218

If you are interested in working in the garden or joining the Garden Committee, contact Linda Blackwelder at llblckwldr@bellsouth.net.
