Volunteer at the Lincoln Square Garden Walk

Posted by Ron Wolford -

Boy could we use some help again! It's MG Nancy Benjamin ('07) of the Lincoln Square Garden Walk.

On Saturday, August, 4th, from 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. (rain or shine!) we will once again be holding the Lincoln Square Garden Walk and Green Fair. Some of you were gracious enough to help us with this wonderful event last time. It features more than 20 gardens, more than 10 environmental groups and attracts more than 300 people to our charming, thriving neighborhood. This year the folks publicizing our event include NBC, ABC and Metromix. Volunteer helpers are needed to hang out beneath the boughs of the leafy trees of Giddings Plaza (with the fascinating environmental groups) and:

1) Collect donations from garden walk participants ($5 that benefits the Greening of Ravenswood) and give them programs and maps

2) Demonstrate composting with a compost bin

3) Answer gardening questions as a Master Gardener

This means ideally speaking we could use 3 people in 3 shifts throughout the day: 10 a.m-12:30 p.m., 12:30 p.m.-3 p.m, 3 p.m.-5:30 p.m.

Please let me know if you can help! We have a great party afterward (at 5:30 p.m.) in my garden (on Leland) and lots of fun all day! Please let me know by July 15th, if you can.

Thank you, thank you!

The ever grateful Nancy Benjamin
