The Community Garden at Twin Ponds


On Saturday, August 24, the Parkwood Neighborhood Association will host a summer work party at Twin Ponds Park from 10:00am to 1:00pm. Volunteers will meet by the Community Garden (pictured) off of 1st NE near the south parking lot.

Over the years, the wooded areas of Twin Ponds Park have slowly been restored to a habitat for native biodiversity. Indigenous plants, shrubs and trees have replaced invasive English ivy and Himalayan blackberries that choked the park. There is still work to do! The invasive species are hardy and volunteers are needed to contain their growth. The work party is a great way to participate in an outdoor activity that will benefit our community and Planet Earth.

If you wish to participate, bring your own gloves and a pair of pruners or loppers.
