May 16 Downtown DeLand Container Gardens Project


Downtown DeLand container Garden Project

If any of you happen to notice a pot that looks terrible, please call either Margaret  or Julia and they will get something in to replace it. It has been so hot, that some of our plants will definitely be stressed out.

We will be putting new plants in the pots downtown on May 16. We will need at least 2 people (assuming we will still be social distancing, so staying 6 feet apart at all times) from each circle to come downtown on the 16th. Begin as early as you want; just be safe. Each circle president will need to contact Margaret Gillen and let her know who will be picking up her circle’s plants between 2-3:30 pm on Friday May 15 at the water treatment plant.
