GHF Oak Hill Garden Maintenance • Douglas County

Saturday, Aug 11th, 2018 @ 8:30am
Oak Hill Cemetery • 1605 Oak Hill Ave. • Lawrence, KS • Map

Do you like getting your hands dirty? Want some experience gardening with natives? Then join us for one of the GHF Oak Hill Garden work days!

The GHF garden at the historic Oak Hill Cemetery is one of three gardens planted in partnership with the City of Lawrence Parks and Rec. Dept. The city has supplied the materials and is watering the garden and GHF is responsible for maintaining it through the fall. It's a fantastic project and a great opportunity to host a beautiful, permanent native garden in one of Lawrence's most historic sites. The Jayhawk Audubon Society and Blue Moon Neighborhood Group are hosting gardens as well and all three are located near the oldest part of the cemetery.

Bring a trowel, gloves, and water to drink. No RSVP is required. If a workday is cancelled because of the weather, we'll post it on our Facebook page. Signs will be posted along the cemetery roads directing you to the GHF garden.

Workdays will also be hosted on Aug. 23rd and Sept. 11th at 8:30 am.
