Robin’s Rain Garden Work Day

When: Sunday May 6th, 2018, 1:00pm

 

In honor of Robin Mittenthal, the Midvale Earth Partnership and Garden Committee is hosting Garden Prep Day. Robin Mittenthal, who touched hundreds of student lives as manager, advisor, mentor and field course leader for the University of Wisconsin-Madison Undergraduate Certificate in Global Health, died suddenly at the end of 2017. He was a Midvale-Lincoln parent and volunteer extraordinaire, who did most of the work to establish the rain garden and oak savannah next to the Midvale playground.

A plaque in Mittenthal’s honor will be presented at 1 p.m., followed by a community effort to continue his legacy and come together to prepare the gardens for students for this growing season.

Please bring shovels, trowels and gloves if you have them.

Fliers in both English and Spanish here.
