Friday, November 20: Queen Anne's
This month's work day will focus on one of the historic areas of upper Funston Avenue, specifically the Queen Anne's square. Here we will weed out garden beds, prune back some of the historic plants and spread some wood chips. This area represents one of the best kept civil war era housing displays in the US, and with our knowledgeable Garden crew we will learn about this historic site as we work!
