The corner of Isham Street and Seaman Avenue saw a transformation on Saturday. Eight Volunteers, assisted by the Parks Department Gardener, removed huge weeds fed by the rains of Hurricane Irene.
The dry loose soil was a big help. But the greatest break for us was the fact that the composting operation at the same corner allowed us to dispose of most of the plant material discards.
The compost service operates from 8:00am to 12 noon during the Saturday Farmer's Market, so we sped up a bit and completed our removals by 12 noon.
