Special thanks to Schmackary's for supplying scrumptious cookies and coffee, and to Phil and everyone else at Chelsea Gardening Center for helping us pick the plants and flowers and giving us a great deal! You guys Rock!

When we started planning our first community gardening day of 2015, we hoped for nice weather and a decent turnout. What we got was a glorious Spring day, an amazing turnout of friends and neighbors, and a day filled with digging, planting, watering and a shovel full of fun!
Turns out we we have a block full of burgeoning gardeners with real landscaping creativity! Throughout the day passersby commented time and again how wonderful the tree beds looked. "Beautiful!" "Thank you!" "What gorgeous tree beds!" and perhaps the best... "45th street gardeners rock!!"
We totally agree.
And who are these talented planters of gorgeous flowers and plants? They are: Chelsea, Dexter, Arielle, Sharon, Susan, Lloyd, Bonnie, Jake, Lola, Lennon, Andreas and David. And together they planted more than 200 plants and flowers up and down the block.
