May 17, Friday, 10:00am.- noon: We will be planting about 350 caladium bulbs of nine different cultivars. We’ll also cut the foliage from the daffodils we planted last Fall that presented such a cheery Spring display. and do some weeding. The park staff will bring the bulbs, shovels, trowels and clippers. Please wear comfortable clothes and bring gloves, hat, sunscreen and any tools of your own if you would like to use them. We’ll meet at the Dorothea Dix Park Boylan Street entrance (parking lot is about 50 yards on your left).
The Raleigh Garden Club will assist with quarterly park enhancement and maintenance projects at our newly adopted Dorothea Dix Park Garden located at the Boylan Entrance at Dorothea Dix Park. All project work days will be approved by appropriate Parks staff and Volunteer Services staff prior to volunteer work days to insure that planned activities do not conflict with other scheduled uses of the park. More details will be announced at meetings and in The Leaflet. Members may volunteer at general meetings or by contacting the Dorothea Dix Park Garden Chair. Join us for this new adventure.
