Rego Park Green Alliance Gets 1500 Daffodil Bulbs Planted in Community
Today several members of the community and school volunteered to work with the Green Alliance to plant daffodils in the school yard and the local community. The kids and adults came out at 9 and worked until 1:00. They planted on Austin Street, 63rd Drive, the schoolyard and Alderton Street. They dug 9 inch holes and placed the bulbs 3 to 6 inches apart. As they went out into the community they were surprised to see people pick up shovels and help them plant, proving together we can make a difference. We had a great time and look forward to seeing the daffodils bloom in the summer.
Also, we will be putting up signs around the neighborhood asking people not to step on the planted daffodils and alerting them to the fact that the Green Committee planted the flowers. If anyone is available to help make the posters please email me.
