Time to put those little green thumbed kids to work. The annual planting event at the Historical Society serving Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown, when children beautify the grounds with sunflowers – and, new this year, gladiola bulbs – comes this Monday, May 21 at 3:30 p.m.
According to event coordinator Jon Osterman (but you can call him “Mr. Sunflower”):
Basically, we plant a bunch of sunflower seedlings in a long hedge row, and the kids get to label seedlings with their names so they can come back and see how their plant is doing. We serve lemonade and brownies. This year we'll be adding gladiola bulbs to our repertoire of things to plant, and in recognition for helping the Historical Society, kids will be awarded free memberships to the Historical Society.
The event is sponsored by The Historical Society, The Little Gardens of Tarrytown, and the BUDS Program.
The planting event will be at the Historical Society (#1 Grove Street), Monday, May 21 at 3:30. (Rain date, Thursday May 24, same time, same place.)
