Sept. 10th Beautification Day at the Bay View Hide House Garden

This came in via email a moment ago:

Hope all is well!!  I wanted to make sure everyone knew about the major beautification plans that are underway for the Bay View Hide House Community Garden.  Teri, from Arts at Large, has coordinated a phenomenal project between Muneer (fabulous artist that did Walnut Way) and Tippie Canoe school.  They have taken the fence posts that Home Depot has donated and have created super cool tiles that are an artist perception of the cellular structure of nature (ie, plants animals, insect etc).

Home Depot & BVNA will be installing the fence on Sept. 10th in the morning. VGI, Arts at Large and the kids from Tippie Canoe School are going to be installing benches, flowers, and woodburned sponsor signs around 11:30-2pm on Sept. 10th. We would love to see YOU there too!  The Bay View Hide House Community Garden is located on the corner of Burrell Street and Deer Place.

Feel to bring any perenials that you would like to see at the garden and we can plant them together!

This garden has succeeded beyond my wildest dreams. Many of the plants in it literally are six feet tall — and those are just the tomatoes! It’s been an honor to be a part of it.
