Spring is the season that begins to show the hard work of our many volunteers as colorful flowers emerge from freshly mulched and weeded beds. This month features the spectacular debut of the newly established gardens in the rejuvenated Potomac Triangle Parks and expansion of our Urban Road Pollinator Habitat.
So many volunteers, spending so many hours pulling so many weeds...and planting...and mulching. Weeding two Saturdays in a row (even more than last fall!) and removing sod for another annual bed. Planting 131 hosta, 37 coral bell, 48 black-eyed Susans, 40 astilbe, 8 azalea, 7 rhododendron, 6 camellia and 2 crape myrtle. Adding 22 bags of soil conditioner and applying 165 bags of mulch. This was the spectacular result!
2,000 bulbs line the on-ramp from 8th Street SE after being planted in very late December 2020. A glorious send-off to commuters and travelers alike.
Our original garden pays tribute to the United States Marine Corps historic 8th & I Barracks with a two-toned tulip in red and gold.
On one of the days our volunteers were working in Potomac Triangle Parks, an anonymous donor purchased a $350 gift card for Guerrilla Gardeners from Ginkgo Gardens. Many thanks!
