Garden Cleanup Day set Oct. 20 at Canal Park

The many gardens in Canal Park and the adjacent Historic Trails in Delphi need preparation before winter every year, according to Diana Allen, coordinator of gardens for the Wabash & Erie Canal Association.

“Each year we have a Spring Workday in April but October is perfect for doing some of that work ahead of time,” she said.

A Fall Workday is planned by the Canal’s Landscape and Trails team for Saturday, Oct. 20, from 9 a.m. to 12 noon.

“This Fall Workday will give the Landscape and Trails team a head start for their Spring Workday before we open Canal Park for visitors again in 2019,” according to Allen.

People of all ages who love working with plants, gardens and trails are invited to participate.

Some tools are available or bring your own, but have them well marked, Allen reminded. She advises that participants should dress according to the work to be done, and bring gloves, wear long pants and work shoes. Youth are encouraged to get involved.

All workers/volunteers will be treated to a free noon lunch served by the Delphi Psi Iota Xi Chapter.
