Flower Basket Planting 2017

Flower Basket Planting: Call for Volunteers

Before last year’s flower baskets become a distant memory, it’s time to start planning for this summer’s baskets. We’ll need the help of many neighbors to get them planted in March!

Our annual flower basket planting event takes place on Friday and Saturday, March 24th and 25th, at Indian Creek Nursery (303 N. Saddle Creek Road.)

Indian Creek Nursery will care for the baskets through the spring.  In May, the beautiful baskets will be hung on the historic Dundee street lights, spreading the unique charm that says Dundee all through the neighborhood.

Planting starts at 10 a.m. and lasts until about 3 p.m., with a mid-day break for a delicious lunch donated by neighborhood restaurants. No gardening experience required! This is a great way to beautify the neighborhood, make new friends, and catch up with old friends.

To volunteer for one or both days, sign up online here, or e-mail Mary Green at megreen4@cox.net, or leave a message at 402-556-1830. 

You can also sign up at the monthly DMPA meetings.

Tree Planting - Volunteers Needed

This year, we will be planting trees on the east side of 50th Street between Leavenworth and Howard along the cemetery fence. This fence is such an eye sore, and with help from our friends at Indian Creek Nursery, we will make it beautiful for years to come. 

We need volunteers! We'd greatly appreciate the help, even if just for a portion of the time.
Please email Dave Schinzel at drschinzel@hotmail.com if you'd like to help.  

Thank you!
