The Friends of the Arboretum at Ashuelot River Park are looking for volunteers to help plant!

Anyone willing to help out, please meet the first Saturday of each month at Asheulot River Park on West St in Keene during the planting/growing season from 8am to 10:30am.

Our first meeting will be on Saturday, May 7th- We will be tarping invasive knotweed and covering the flower beds with composted leaves supplied by the Parks Dept.

People can just show up and we’ll get them working. Gloves and a rake would be helpful too.

Everyone is welcome – it’s the People’s Park and it needs all of our help.

Background: This group of The Friends is newly incorporated and is working with the Park Advisory Board and the Parks Dept. to revitalize the Park. The Friends has a small Board, a group of 10 Master Gardeners and a few volunteers. Building our crew of volunteers is this year’s big project. We are planning a Rain Garden too,  with a grant from the Cheshire Conservation Commission’s Opportunity Fund. We’re planting NATIVES!
