Remembering Joe Hubbard

Joe loved his Betty. And he loved their dogs. He loved the garden and he loved the flowers he so lovingly photographed. We remember Joe as the loyal, irascible, funny friend he was to so many of us.

Ladybug Release

As part of our It’s My Park Day event this coming Saturday, May 18, there will be a Ladybug Release for kids. We hold this popular event several times each summer when kids get to carry a bag of ladybugs to where ever they choose in the garden and release them.

From National Geographic Kids
“… people like them because they are pretty, graceful, and harmless to humans. But farmers love them because they eat aphids and other plant-eating pests. One ladybug can eat up to 5,000 insects in its lifetime!”

Feel free to print, post and distribute the flyer below.


It's My Park Day

Join us for the spring It’s My Park Day on Saturday, May 18. Twice a year, spring and fall, we invite everyone to  celebrate our community, help rake and weed, eat and drink, and learn about the garden. There will be children’s activities, including the perennial favorite, a Ladybug Release.

Download and print our flyers, post them and forward them to friends.

Pete's Plaque

We finally mounted the memorial plaque for our old friend Pete Lambert on the wall in front of the BRC under the rose bush we planted there in his memory. Those who knew Pete will think of him and remember his kindness, humor, and dignity.

Turtles Leave for the Winter

With a lot of help from a little dog, Richard and I pumped down the pond over the weekend and pulled 13 turtles out. They will live indoors until spring. Our pond isn’t deep enough and lacks sufficient material in the bottom for them to burrow into for the winter.

The fish stay. They stop
