Daffodil Planting Events This Weekend

Boston Blooms with Daffodils, a citywide program offered by the Boston Parks and Recreation Department, has once again provided 500 daffodil bulbs to be planted this fall in the Columbia-Savin Hill section of Dorchester. There will be two planting locations again this year in the neighborhood:

  1. Ryan Playground at corner of Harborview and Dorchester Ave, and
  2. McConnell Park by the flag pole

We need volunteers to help with this planting project. With plenty of bulbs to be placed in the ground, people should work best in teams of two: a digger and a planter. This can be a fun family event, where youth can participate in the beautification of their neighborhood, and enjoy seeing their efforts rewarded with blooms every spring. These bulbs are available now and help is needed to get them into the ground.

Persons interested in helping to plant these bulbs should meet at 9:15/9:30 am in Ryan Playground and at 10:00/10:30 am in McConnell Park on THIS Saturday, November 4, 2017.
