Summary

This year marks the third year for Rainbow Park as an Emeritus Greenspace group. Over the years the group has developed this small, urban site into a beautiful park garden space. Dedicated members of the community routinely weed in the garden to help maintain its appearance. Stewardship was the goal this year and guided the group towards weeding workdays fortified by planting groundcover along the back fence, and spreading mulch throughout the beds. Rainbow Park is a beautiful location where stewardship and community building flourish.
