The students of Newton North carpentry instructor, Garrett Tingle, are putting the final touches on two benches for the Forest Avenue Islands. The benches are made of Epay wood, one of the hardest woods on the planet. The benches will last over 75 years and, best of all, no splinters.

So much is happening at the Forest Avenue Islands. The City of Newton has installed water pipes, removed dead trees and stumps, and stripped depleted soil. This week, workers will complete the installation of new curbing.

During the week of May 9th, you’ll see irrigation installed, loam laid, flowers planted, and mulch spread. By the end of May, two benches will be placed at the site.
We are amazed and grateful that in only four months, we’ve raised $48,000. Our challenge now is to raise $12,000 more to complete the project’s funding. We need $60,000 in total to pay the contractors and nursery for their services and to maintain the plants. You can donate right from this page. So easy.
