Spring Cleaning Time at Noyes Park

After a few tempting days of summer-like weather last month, April has settled squarely into spring. Sure, there have been morning chills and gloomy days, but with that comes budding flowers, green leaves, and longer daytime hours. At FoNP, we're preparing for our first cleanup event of 2016, which is scheduled for tomorrow, April 9th. Noyes Park needs a little spring cleaning, so to speak.

Our monthly cleanup events focus mainly on park beautification. We pick up a lot of litter, pull weeds, sweep paths, and do other work to maintain Noyes Park's appearance. But this first cleanup of 2016 is a special event. Those of you that signed up for our community garden will join us to turn over the soil, and perhaps get your first seeds into the ground, as we look forward to a successful growing season here in DC.

We are also incorporating a community meeting into the cleanup event. After the cleanup, stick around for snacks and refreshments and talk with your neighbors or fellow community gardeners. Meet the board, including our newest member, Ed Garnett, and discuss what you'd like to see in the park, or any praise or concerns you may have.

It will be nice to spend a brisk morning in the park. We hope you join us to keep Noyes Park a beautiful and safe space for the community.
