Thumbelina-A Community Garden for everyone

Ranger Maureen and I were working at Thumbelina on April 2, 2012. WITH april 1st over, we took down our April fools Thumbelina National Park and Community Garden sign,  and replaced it with our standard Thumbelina Park and community garden sign.

Then we started planting some new sunflower seedlings in the garden. As we were doing this, a fellow with a hardhat starts talking to us and after a few minutes we get him to join in planting in the Park.

We talk and turns out he's working, as a contractor, across the street on the new 7-Eleven store, and is standing in Thumbelina to get a good view of what his crew is doing on the building.

It's great having a micro park in the heart of Chelsea where we can invite neighbors to participate and get to know each other.

A big welcome to park Chelsea's newest Ranger,  Park Chelsea Ranger Shohidul!
