Native Garden Prep

Pond Park

April 30, 2022 from 1-3 at Pond Park

(GPS Directions Use: 690 Main Street Bolton, MA)

Next Important Date: April 30 at Pond Park @1:00 -

Rain Date May 1 @1:00

On this date we will prep the garden area,

  • Remove the existing sod

  • Put down the plastic to solarize the area.

  • Place signs stating this is a future Native Pollinator Garden.

  • Start identifying invasives for a future Invasive Removal Day

What is needed:

  • ARTISTS: A few people to make signs letting the community know that a Native Pollinator Garden is in the works. (We have old campaign signs that can be painted over, paint needs to be able to hold up in various weather conditions.) If you are interested in this please let me know.

  • Tools to remove grass: shovels, edgers, sod cutter

  • Rocks, bricks, etc. to secure the plastic

  • Enthusiasm - even if you don't have any of the items above, please still come join and enjoy the community that is growing.

While our seeds have been planted there have been a number of activities going on. If you didn't get a chance to plant the seeds, do it now. It's never too late and they might not be ready this year but may be for next year.


1) We have been observing the flooding and potential water line in the basin. We now have a good idea

2) Lynn worked with DPW and P&R to determine the location of electricity so we can safely work in the area.

3) Large plastic sheet has been obtained to solarize the garden area. This will help to stop unplanned plants from popping up and taking over once the sod is removed.
