Friends of Cherrywood Green, You Make It Easy Being Green

Green maintained through the good works of neighbors

Written by Mike Damal

I mowed the Green yesterday and I am always surprised at how well it is maintained. It is rare when I have to pick up dog droppings, and I have to search to find trash to pick up. I appreciate all the neighbors who pick up at the park—thank you for making the Green a showplace for all of us to enjoy! I often ask for volunteers to help with the Green, but I’m just as impressed with the countless volunteers who take it upon themselves to maintain the space. We have had people mow the grass, thin out invasive trees, and mulch and weed the flowerbeds facing Cherrywood Road. And I’m sure there are other silent volunteers who have done many other good deeds.

Friends of the Green (FROG) maintains Cherrywood Green through volunteer labor. Austin only empties the trash can—all other maintenance is done by the neighborhood. We greatly appreciate all the volunteers, whether they are part of FROG or take it upon themselves to beautify the Green.
