Volunteers from the community, calling themselves the Blossom Brigade, work on the gardens of the Bridge under the supervision of the Head Gardener, Carol DeLorenzo, and the Assistant Gardener, Elliston Bingham. These volunteer gardeners work as often as they can. The two-hour work sessions take place twice weekly, beginning in April and continuing through October, on Wednesday evenings, 5:00-7:00 p.m., and on Friday mornings at seasonally adjusted times: April, 10 a.m.-noon; May, September, and October, 9:00-11:00 a.m.; June, July, and August, 8:00-10:00 a.m. Instructions to Blossom Brigade members are given by email from the Head Gardener. New helpers are welcome. Prior gardening experience is not required. Contact us for more information about joining the Blossom Brigade.
