DO YOU HAVE A GREEN THUMB?
This newly formed committee is looking for community talent and interest. The Greenskeeper committee was established to serve as the community association group that will be responsible for maintaining and beautifying the grounds at Town Hall and our community entrance signage area. If you enjoy gathering with friends and neighbors planting, mulching, landscaping, and pruning, we need you!
NEW PARTICIPANTS ARE WELCOME
The Greenskeeper Committee is made up of a mix of people who share a love of gardening and interest in making new friends and forming community bonds. If you are interested in joining this committee, please contact us or feel free to join in a monthly ACA meeting.
Install rain gardens and rock gardens to help slow down the water run-off that floods the front yard of Town Hall and the erosion of the ravine slopes along the parking lot and behind the building.
A rain garden is a depressed area in the landscape that collects rain water from a roof, driveway or street and allows it to soak into the ground. Planted with grasses and flowering perennials, rain gardens can be a cost effective and beautiful way to reduce runoff from your property.
TYDING UP THE NEIGHBORHOOD
Greenskeeper efforts don't have to stop at Town Hall and the community entrance signage area. Our goal is to help with other community related projects that are needed around our neighborhood in common use greenspace areas. We want to work together as a community to include our sister organization, Arden Beaches, Inc. (ABI).
