The dictionary defines GNOMES as magical creatures that dwell in the earth and guard its treasures. Well my fellow gnomes, this year we’re designating the Wednesday evenings in June, July, August, and September to maintain the magic at our Brighton Heights gardens. We’ll hit a different garden each week to weed, water and do necessary maintenance on one of our gardens. We’ll start at 7 PM in June and July and go until dusk or fatigue sets in. No one need feel obligated to be there every Wednesday or even for the full evening on any night but come when you can for as long as you can. A few extra helpers make a tremendous difference.
Here is the schedule so far:
June 6, LEGION PARK Mark Kirby and his merry band have always done a great job of keeping our garden gem polished.

Please mark your calendars and show up as often as you can. Bring your favorite hand tool and gloves, if you need them. Larger tools and weed buckets, etc. will be available.
Please feel free to bring a friend. We are equal opportunity weeders. Also forward this anyone that I may have missed.
If you can make Wednesday evenings, pick any time you can to work on your favorite garden. There are always weeds to pull, litter to pick up, etc. If you have any questions, call me at 412-779-9222.
