Summary

EAST EDGE GARDENERSis an emeritus group that maintains 9 beds on Edgewood Avenue and 2 beds on Pendleton Triangle. Having made some extensive improvements to the beds in recent years, the group, comprised mostly of retired neighborhood residents, focused on stewarding the beds this summer. Each bed was systematically edged, weeded, and mulched. In addition, some dead shrubs were replaced. East Edge Gardeners' beautiful perennial beds make it a pleasure to drive along Edgewood Avenue.
