RIGC is out and about helping other Island organizations with the Daffodil Project. In September, we helped to prepare the space in front of Gristedes. Sande and Mitch Ellison, Neal Weissman, Julia Ferguson, Curtis,(one of our associates) plus Paula and her children, all spent a morning digging and prepping with iDig2Learn.
Last weekend it was time to go down to pick up the bulbs.
RIGC members, Ron and Jennifer Schuppert gaveThe Daffodil Project a lift. Literally, donating their time, car and muscle to pick up hundreds of bulbs from Emily Walker of New Yorkers For Parks.
The Daffodil service activity will be Saturday, October 11th from 11AM until Noon with a massive bulb planting at the Motorgate Bus Turnaround. RIGC is partnering with the iDig2Learn hosted Daffodil Project to kick off RIOC's Fall For Arts Festival.
Volunteer opportunity at 10:15 AM that morning, contact Christina Delfico atiDig2Learn@gmail.com if interested. Join us for this fun event next Saturday morning! http://www.rigarden.org/bulletin-board.html
