Calling All Kenny Gardeners!

Kenny gardenIf you are interested in joining a group of volunteers to start cleaning up the Kenny school grounds, we’d love to have you join us on July 24 and after!

Kenny School Clean-Up Day
9 a.m.-Noon
Saturday, July 24
east side of Kenny school

Please join a group of volunteers in cleaning up the east side of the Kenny school grounds. All are welcome - this is a combined group of Kenny School parents and staff, Kenny neighborhood residents and friends, and Master Gardeners.
What we'll do: clean gardens, pull weeds, remove volunteer trees, prune shrubs and start the groundwork for preparing a pollinator garden.

What gardening knowledge you need: basically, none! Master Gardeners will create clean-up plans, answer questions, and highlight how/what needs to be completed.

What to bring: power trimmers (and people to operate them!), shovels, weeders, clean tools, garden gloves, bags, trucks for hauling garden debris.

Who to bring: fun people who are interested in preparing Kenny School for a successful back-to-school and making the school grounds something that is a beautiful spot within our community.

Kenny Raingarden Tour

raingardenWe are happy to share some of the results of our 2019 and 2020 Kenny Raingarden Program. We had hoped to host an in-person garden tour, but are going with a self-guided tour in this time of COVID-19. The attached pdf highlights several of the gardens around the neighborhood- each one had unique needs and solutions. Each garden is visible from the sidewalk or street and we ask that you not go onto private property. Also please remember to socially distance and wear a mask!
