Breaking Ground with the City of Newton


The Newton Garden Buds, Susan Conkey, Kajal Vicinelli, Dana Davis, Deirdre Heilbron, and Carol Reichert (Sarah Kish not shown), met with city officials, Elaine Gentile,  Kim Ritcey (taking photo), and Commissioners Jim McGonagle, and Bob DeRubeis to plan groundbreaking on the Forest Avenue islands in April. The city will supply underground pipes to bring water to the islands, seeding of drought-resistant grass, removal of stumps and dead trees, and materials for two benches. The alliance of public and private interests will make this project happen.
