Daffodil Day in Kensington This Sunday

Sunday, October 18th, is Daffodil Day in Kensington, Brooklyn. Join your neighbors and plant daffodil bulbs on Church Avenue and its side streets. In the spring, watch the flowers that you planted bloom!

From 9:00 a.m. to noon, volunteers will
* loosen soil in tree pits
* plant daffodil bulbs
* go to Connie's Cafe for free coffee and a muffin

Wear clothing and shoes that you don't mind getting some dirt on. If you can, bring a hand cultivator, trowel, bulb borer, anything else that's useful for digging and planting and some for your neighbor, too.

Meet at 9 a.m. in front of Astoria Federal Savings, at the corner of Church and McDonald avenues.

Connie, the owner of Connie's Cafe (corner of Church Avenue and E. 5th Street), has graciously agreed to donate coffee and muffins for the volunteers.

This neighborhood event is sponsored by KARMABrooklyn (Kensington Area Resident/Merchant Alliance) and WKAG (West Kensington Action Group).
