Recruiting New Board Members

Help Blair Street Gardens plan this year's season in our two gardens. BSG is recruiting new Board members to begin this March. BSG maintains The Gateway Garden on Willy Street - many of you walk, drive, or bike by it nearly every day. It's the small park across from Machinery Row Bikes at the intersection of Willy, Wilson, and Blair Streets and John Nolen Drive. BSG also maintains Wilson Green up the hill toward the Capitol on East Wilson Street across from Come Back Inn. We are looking for new Board members to guide the gardens this season and next. We hold at least one Board meeting a year, sometimes two, and also keep in touch via email. We also ask Board members to help with gardening chores on an as needed or scheduled basis. And if you're detail oriented and like to keep track of money, we're also in need of a Treasurer.

Contact if you're interested. Thanks for your consideration.

New Bench Installed at The Gateway Garden

We are pleased to announce that BSG has installed a second bench at The Gateway Garden. The bench honors Jeff Kuesel, one of BSG’s co-founders. Due to his tireless dedication over nearly 30 years, the BSG continues today. Jeff handled the administration and fundraising, and he spent endless hours planting spring bulbs and summer annuals and tending to the perennials and shrubs. Many of you will remember seeing him working in the Gardens in all kinds of weather during evenings and weekends. Thank you to all who contributed! The bench, designed by local artists Michael Burns and Kevin Earley, is made of white oak and aluminum.
