Native Gardening Volunteers Needed

The Lindenwood Park Neighborhood Association is looking for 4 or more volunteers to replace a Daylily garden near the corner of upper Wabash and Oleatha (across from 7080 Oleatha) with Missouri native plants. This would support a St. Louis University program intended to strengthen the bee population in the City. SLU’s Center for Sustainability and Department of Biology are partnering with the Lindenwood Park and Holly Hills neighborhoods to make this happen.   Here are the details:

Project Leaders:               Sharon Panian and Milton Murry

Time Commitment:

1st:          Estimated two to three hours to pick up native plans from the greenhouse in Forest Park. Anyone with an available pick-up truck would be needed.

2nd:         Estimated four hours to put the plants in the ground

3rd:          Estimated 2 – 4 hours per month per growing season for ongoing maintenance. This includes help with watering and weeding. Water is available through a fire hydrant located near the site.


No time commitment is needed during the winter months but Project Leaders would appreciate at least a one year commitment from volunteers for the ongoing maintenance work.
