The GBGC has planted several public gardens in Brookland and maintains them until they are taken over by new landowners. At this time the Garden club cares for two public gardens. One, located at 12 th and Michigan NE, is called the Gateway Garden and contains the Welcome to Brookland sign. The other is the YES! Garden at 12th and Quincy. Volunteer gardening days, every other month, are devoted to planting, trimming and weeding these gardens as well as to tree pruning(see below).
In 2011 we joined Casey Trees in a tree planting at Turkey Thicket. We have committed to watering and weeding a grove of 18 trees for two years.
