Phase 1 of the Forest Patio project is completed (pictures attached). Thank you to all of our volunteers including Stephanie from Drew Valley, Terrell Carstens, Chris and Val Horner, Rob Turner and his family, Josh Sinclair, Anand Thaker, Greg Trinkle, Steve and Lee Walker. Big thank you to Greg Trinkle for the use of his pressure washer. Steve Walker built the fence yesterday. A few minor things remain including trellis’ at the community garden and garden plants. The landscape beds are built, perennials and herbs are planted, fruit trees are in the ground (Apricot, Apple, Peach and Plum) and the community garden fence is up. The Butterfly Garden in the center of the landscape will develop butterfly/hummingbird blooms by July or earlier. We’ll begin planting the garden when the irrigation system is installed in the next couple of weeks.
Phase 2 will consist of picnic table area renovation, irrigation system installation and river bridge reconstruction.
If you’d like to donate online please go to our website www.briarwoodparkga.org . Any funds donated will go towards a matching grant program from Park Pride. Not to say all funds will be matched but they contribute towards the Park Pride matching grant programs that occur in November. You’ll find promotional opportunities with Blo Beauty Bar (30% off) and Brookhaven Fitness Studio (free class) on our website as well.
We currently need river bridge reconstruction assistance and irrigation piping installation (installation only).
