Volunteer work session to help the young trees planted at the Roslindale Village commuter rail station

In 2012, GreeningRozzie volunteers planted 10 trees at the commuter rail site. Since that time we’ve watered and tended to the trees. Join us on this years spring workday. We’ll weed out to the tree drip line and fortify the trees with compost and mulch. All volunteers and tree-lovers welcome. Please bring garden gloves and tools for weeding.

When: Sunday, April 28, 2 to 4 pm

Where: Roslindale Village commuter rail station upper parking lot
