Knotweed Knockout!

The Polish Hill Green Team has been working on the details of the Knotweed Knockout during the long dreary months of winter. Now that the sun is shining and the snow has left, the team is gearing up for the beginning of the project.

The encroachment of that pernicious gardener’s scourge, KNOTWEED, has all but crowded out the diversity of plants native to our region. The Gren Team will be experimenting in a lot on Melwood Ave. and the first step will take place with clearing the knotweed from the site. Public Allies will be joining forces with the members of the Polish Hill Green Team on April 22. If you are interested in helping out and would like to learn more about what we are doing with this project, consider stopping by and helping out.
