West 104th Street Garden

No Workday Saturday (Feb 6)

Filed under: News — by west104garden @ 11:05 am

Due to the anticipated 3-6″ snowfall overnight, the Saturday Special Cleanout WORKDAY will instead be the Snow date, SUNDAY, FEB. 7, 11:00 AM. Various jobs will be announced then, as some things were done this afternoon after our Meeting with 2 Parks and 4 Contractors reps, including the Job foreman. If you need to remove anything from your bed — if it’s one of those in the entry path as shown on Jean’s diagram sent last week — please do so Sunday!

Present at this meeting for the Gardeners’ concerns were: Frank Grech, Jean Jaworek, Ann Levine, Robin Mace, Paula McKenzie, yours truly, and Janice Vrana. All questions were answered, and everybody left happy with the results of this pleasant, friendly session.

IMPORTANT: No Gardeners/gardening in the West garden site will be allowed during the proposed two weeks’ reconstruction sched ule — Starting February 8 through February 22 — weather permitting. Ring bells, chant favorite mantras, light candles for clear, non-freezing temps these next two weeks!

Thanks to Frank for volunteering to be the Contractors’ go-to-gardening liaison during this renovation; and to Jean for making the flyer which has been posted on doors of 12 W., 20 W, and
Townhouse Bulletin Boards. These “To Our Neighbors” notices are in addition to the signs that Parks and Contractors will be posting.

There will be “No Parking” signs and orange pylons/sawhorses in front of the West garden, also.
Contractors will have necessary Permits on site for inspection as might need be.

FYI: The final Ballot count approving the entry route was: 34 Yes, 0 No, 1 Abstain, or 35.

Al for now — Lucille M.
