Attention All Eagle Heights Gardeners

Helping Irondequoit Plan for Progress (HIPP) needs your help!

We are looking for additional volunteers for 3 remaining weeks starting 9/24, 10/1 and 10/8.  We are also looking for volunteers for next season.

  • The HIPP group plants annual flowers in 9 oversized street planters on the north side of the Titus/Cooper Rd intersection.
  • Watering volunteers sign up for 1 week of watering between Memorial Day and Halloween, which runs from Monday-Sunday.
  • Volunteers receive 8 3-gallon watering jugs in carrying bins from the previous waterer on Sunday evening.
  • Volunteers fill the jugs at home and water each of the 9 planters between 3 and 6 times during their assigned week, depending on weather
  • When they finish their turn on Sunday, deliver the watering jugs to the next volunteer on the schedule.

Interested parties should send me an email;  Diane Zaccarine, dzacis@rochester.rr.com  and I will provide them information
