Winner of City Garden Contest
Going Green at Riverview Cemetery
The Neighborhood Planning Council
and Delaware Center for Horticulture
created a Greenspace Challenge category
in the 2011 Wilmington City Garden Contest.
Friends of Historic Riverview Cemetery (FHRC) was awarded First Place and $250.00 for transforming the long neglected baby section with the creation of a beautiful perennial garden. Flowers from grave sites were recycled and planted by volunteers who also brought jugs of water to keep the plants alive during the summer drought.
Please join FHRC volunteer effort this fall and spread compost (made on site) on flower gardens in prepartion for winter.
