The Clark Lake Garden Angels’ Karen Bullinger reports a good turnout for their fall fundraiser on Sunday. The Garden Angels offered a wide variety of items, including mums, garden art, and baked goods. Also on hand was Jay Potter, an arborist who demonstrated the proper way to prune trees, take soil samples, and was available to answer questions. He’s pictured below with Shelley Wilbur.
The event was held at the Clark Lake Community Center. The Garden Angels plant and care for the gardens that surround the Community Center. They also maintain the triangle at North Lake and Ocean Beach Road. That section was the site of a major re-do this spring. The group removed the overgrown plantings and poison ivy and replanted. In spite of the lack of rain, the makeover was successful.
The fundraiser helps underwrite the cost of supplies the Garden Angels need to perform their magic. But it doesn’t cover all expenses. If you’d like to help out, you can make a tax-advantaged donation via the Clark Lake Spirit Foundation through this website via credit card.
At the event, two new members joined the group. If you’re interested in becoming a Garden Angel, contact Karen Bullinger at 529-4091 or through this website at email@example.com.
Below is a slide show featuring the event and some the handiwork of the Garden Angels.
