Come Saturday, August 27th you might be ready to get out of your routine and join the Marlborough Community Coalition, the KCPD Metro Patrol and other Troost volunteers as they clean up Troost Avenue 79th to 85th streets (8AM to Noon). For them, it's a positive way to say "Hey, we CARE about our neighborhood!" For us, it's mostly about getting ready to plant bulbs in October along ALL of those blocks of Troost Avenue. The Marlborough group will provide you with water, gloves and bags. You can park in the car lot behind the old King Louie (79th and Troost) and join the community!
We should also let you know that we'll be in the same area scrubbing down the Center High School greenhouse so you might want to stop by and learn about that exciting year round TOT beautification gardening project and maybe check out our Bromeliads OR tell us what it is that you want us to grow! The greenhouse is located on the North side of the school which is at 8715 Holmes Rd.
Donations? Your cash donations for tulips are always welcome but NOW that it's August, it is also a great time to donate any plants that you are dividing or digging or wanting to get rid of in your garden. We're all about propagating and growing at the greenhouse throughout the winter (along with the super help of the Center High School Life Skills students) so bring your flora and foliage and plastic pot (4" or larger) donations on the 27th OR let us know when's a good time for us to come pick them up.
