Summary

Chatham Square Neighborhood Association began its first summer with URI Greenspace in July of 2012. This committed new group focuses on stewarding the center garden of Chatham Square Park. After pruning heavily, pulling invasive weeds, and mulching, the center garden has begun to take on new life. The group looks forward to carrying out a good maintenance plan and continuing to revitalize the center garden, which already represents so much community investment and hard work.
