The Friends of The North End Parks collaborated with The Nazzaro Center Program Director Laurie D’Elia and elementary students in The Nazzaro Center After School Program to plant hundreds of crocus and daffodils. The children learned about the bulbs from FOTNEP President Nate Swain and member Diane Valle, as the children dug in the earth. The children were enthusiastic gardeners, working in teams. They were enthralled by the discovery of worms. They look forward to the colorful arrival of Spring at The Nazzaro Center.
Additional bulbs were planted in The Prado.
The Friends of The North End Parks are a community based group of volunteers who are inspired to improve the horticulture in The North End.
