On Saturday, June 15 several volunteers joined Rey Center staff for Garden Volunteer Day at the Curious George Cottage. Projects for the day included creating the new Noon Peak Road entrance to the Mary Bierbrier Community Gardens, installing the new community gardens hand-painted sign, lots and lots of weeding and fluffing of mulch, and relocation of a few shrubs and plants.
Thank you to the volunteers who joined us, without them there would be no Garden Volunteer Day! Thank you to Maryellen Sakura, Sylvia Taub, Rael Glietsman, Birdie Britton, Will Twombley, and Dave Gaudioso of Like Father, Like Son Landscaping.

The project of creating the new garden entrance got a huge helping hand from Dave Gaudioso of Like
Other projects for the day included weeding the perennial beds around the Curious George Cottage and the berm in front of the community gardens along Noon Peak Road. The weeds were winning the war, but by lunchtime the volunteers had successfully reclaimed the perennial gardens and the berm, and the plants and shrubs will certainly be happier for it. Now we just need to stay one step ahead of those weeds…let us know if you want to volunteer a hand to help out!
Thank you again to all the volunteers who made this day a success! To learn more about the Margret and H.A. Rey Center or the Mary Bierbrier Community Gardens visit TheReyCenter.org or stop by the Rey Center on the second level of Waterville Valley’s Town Square.
