Work continued at Englewood and S. Normal this Saturday, although a smaller crowd this week. A group of university students were scheduled to show up, but didn’t.
Still, there was a solid crew of about eight or nine working with Ellen and John. Dip’s farmers market was closed up today – since he had some other appointment he had to attend to.
Wood chip spreading continued with the skeletal crew. First, we cleaned up along the alley on the other side of the farmer’s market storage shed and spread chip to complete the work along Englewood and S. Normal.
Then the process of hauling chip to the Gazebo lot began. Down one wheel barrow, the city trash container worked very well.
The gazebo lot is adorned by one of the Chicago Botanical Gardens signs, naming Rowan Trees garden. Next time I’m down there, I’ll ask to hear the story of why the park was named after Rowan, and whose trees were Rowan’s anyway?

Before we departed, John took Ellen, Erica and I over to observe the Bernard Place Block Club Community Garden. This will need some serious pruning and cutting back – but, oh, what a little pretty little tucked away alley garden this will be.
