Fruit Trail Reawakening/Victory Garden

March 27, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until March 28, 2021

From 10am to 5pm for the very first gardening of the season.
Newtown Parks and Recreation, along with Andrew Mangold will be hosting a weekend event to wake up the Newtown Fruit Trail for 2021 after its long winter sleep. We’ll be getting out very early this Spring to kick off the first garden session of the year.Gather together to evoke your own gardening appetite as we dig into the thawing trail.
Join us in community at the Fruit Trail to get our hands dirty as our hearts alight for all of the growing to come. We’ll tidy up the gardens, plant new trees, assess the health of our plants and evaluate tasks for the year ahead. We’ll be removing winter tree cages, planting new bulbs, shrubs and flowers, and learning about each of the different species assembled at the trail. This is a great opportunity to gather insight for your own projects, to remain involved at the trail and get a jump start on your gardens at home.
We’ll continue to make a home for butterflies, bees and birds at the trail, growing plants that feed the land and the people as one. This is a chance to get your first taste of Spring gardening, together in community! Join us as we celebrate fruits, flowers, trees and the joy of good work.
Last year, the trail surprised us with a flush of Echinacea that brightened the length of the trail. This year, we can expect another new spectrum of color as our perennial plants grow into maturity. We can look forward to our fourth season of public berries this summer, and we may get to begin counting the number of bird, bee and butterfly species that are making a home at the Trail. This is for the good of all! Come; whether you are a garden expert or an inspired beginner, there is a role for everyone at the trail!
Bring gloves and any garden tools you may want to use.
Don’t miss out on helping with a project that has brought so much joy and growth to the Newtown Community.
Masks and Social Distancing will be required.
