Volunteers needed to help create avenue of trees on E. Lynn

Mary Hansen, Eastlake gardener extraordinaire, has been busy planting an avenue of trees on E. Lynn between Minor and Fairview. 

The new garden space, which features four red vine maples, is across the street from Hansen’s own amazing garden. Hansen and her volunteers had to remove concrete from the planting strip. Under the concrete was gravel that had to be dug up to make room for the trees.

The work isn’t done, Hansen says. They need volunteers with picks, shovels and buckets to help dig out the remaining gravel and crushed concrete. The work will begin at 10 a.m. on Friday. The trees will be planted on Saturday.

Hansen encourages everyone to stop by and help out.

“It’s a great way work off the Thanksgiving feast and create beauty in our Eastlake,” she says.
