Volunteers needed to Maintain Union Square Park Flower Beds

Cleaning and maintenance of the flower beds has always been up to Union Square residents. We really need help getting the beds into shape this Spring and then maintaining them during the summer.
We are in need of neighbors to help take care of the flower beds by adopting a flower bed in the park. We are asking that you commit to at least 1-2 hours every other week on maintaining the flower bed during the Spring and Summer. All that is required is that you rake, bag and clean-up your bed. If you don't have materials, we can supply them to you. If you are interested in adopting a bed, select your bed and then email Salvatore Seeley at or call 302-270-5503. Salvatore will be in touch and arrange a time to go over some details with you.
