Volunteers needed to help improve Riverside train station’s landscaping

Volunteers are needed the morning of June 25, starting at 7:30 a.m. to do a make over of the landscaping on the North side of the Riverside train station. The old rotten wooden ties and overgrown plants will be removed and the entire area, surrounding the “inbound side” building will be reworked. Work will go on rain or shine. Even helping for an hour or two would be welcomed.  

The 20-year old plantings are part of a true community garden used by many Riverside residents commuting toward New York City. But the plants are old, the wooden retaining barriers worn and ineffective.

Members of The Riverside Association will be working with Riverside Garden Club members and staff from the Greenwich Parks and Recreation Department to do the entire job in one day.

Help is needed to dig, move and generally assist getting the old materials out and the new materials planted into the refreshed space. Bring a shovel, water to drink, gloves and other garden tools to dig, trim and plant.

Please email Pete Uhry at [email protected] noting what hour you plan to start, how long you can help and how many of you will come. Students can earn volunteer hours credit. Because of traffic issues and the proximity of trains, young children are not encouraged to participate.
