‘MULCHING YOUR COMMUNITY’

How to wrap up the season and look forward to next year

September 19, 2006

[FERNDALE] – The days are shorter, the nights are colder – just what should Sullivan Renaissance projects be doing to prepare for winter?

 

Sullivan Renaissance holds a seminar entitled “Mulching Your Community” on Wednesday, October 4 at 7:00 p.m. at the CVI Building in Ferndale.  The program will look at how community groups can wrap up the season and look forward to next year.

 

Panelists will focus on four areas:

-        Preparing Your Gardens for Winter – Robert Hayes and Gay Donofrio

-        Finances – Friend-Raising, Fun-Raising, Dollars & Cent$ – Cora Edwards

-        Volunteers – Celebrating Them and Keeping Them – Hank D’Auria and Nancy Levine

-        Looking Ahead – Organizing & Planning – Denise Frangipane

 

While the focus of the seminar is for Sullivan Renaissance projects, everyone is welcome to attend.  Individuals and groups interested in learning about Sullivan Renaissance are invited.  Groups may enter their names in a raffle drawing for two or more cubic yards of mulch, donated by DJM Landscaping of Ferndale and Taylor Recycling of Montgomery, NY.  Refreshments will be available.  Please RSVP by October 2.

 

Sullivan County communities worked on almost 70 projects since initial grants were awarded in March.  Now comes the task of preparing for autumn, winter and next year. 

 

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program funded by the Beaverkill Foundation and the Gerry Foundation.  To RSVP or for information about how to get involved in the 2007 program call Sullivan Renaissance at 845-295-2445.
