It’s officially SPRING! Time for spring cleaning in our homes and time to get our flower beds ready to burst with color for the rest of the outdoor season.

It’s also time for our Great American Clean-up/Green Up Day in our neighborhood Cincinnati Parks. The date scheduled is:

Saturday April 13th 9am to Noon with pizza to follow.

  • Please everyone come and help volunteer some time in our neighborhood parks.
  • Sign in will be done at Seasongood Square Park then off to work to assigned task.

The projects scheduled:

  • Spreading mulch around trees and flower beds.¬†Mulch may not be available due to cost.
  • Picking up litter in the parks and surrounding streets
  • Raking and hauling leaves.

Please wear proper shoes, bring your own gloves and bring your water bottle.

We don’t know if the park will get playground mulch. The issue again is the cost. The playground mulch has soared in price. So we may or may not see the playground mulch on April 13th.

Last week Jim Burkhardt, East Regional Manager, and I did a walk through and have the work to be done listed on the Cincinnati Parks Volunteer sign up page. Cincinnati Parks Volunteer Coordinator, Christyl Johnson-Roberts requests that volunteers sign up for our event at:

The month of March has come in like a lion and will exit like a lamb for our April Showers to come in and ready us for May Flowers! We’ve been waiting for color all winter long and it’s coming in bloom now.

On Wednesdays (typically 10 to 12) myself and Sarah Koucky will be working in Seasongood Square Park. Please come to the park and join in on the gardening or just visit. Please bring your own garden tools and water too.

Thank you everyone! We hope to see you in the park!
