The annual Sorauren Park clean-up and gardening day is set for Saturday, May 9, from 10 a.m. to about 1 p.m. Coffee’s on… bring your gloves, trowels, shovels, wheelbarrows! (Or just bring yourself, that’s OK too.)

Once again, local residents will team up with a special group of Yale University alumni, who have volunteered for five years now at the Sorauren event as part of the Yale Global Day of Service.

Thanks also to Parks, Forestry and Recreation for providing mulch and supplies.

Meet by the Fieldhouse. Work will focus on the gardens there, then spread out around the park depending on volunteer strength. Please rsvp using the Contact form so we have an idea of how many to expect.

It’s a great way to meet new neighbours and friends, and spend some time outdoors. All ages, no experience necessary!
