UMNA maintains six decorative neighborhood gardens.  This does not happen without the help of  many volunteers.  Volunteers meet at a different garden each week (Wednesdays 6-7 pm) to  perform routine maintenance and occasionally, more serious interventions.  If you can help out, pleases contact Jane Alexander at  It's a great way to meet your neighbors, share gardening tips, and have fun!  No experience necessary!
