Spring Cleanup at Willmore Heritage Garden

 

It’s that time! The wildflowers at the Willmore Heritage Garden are finished blooming and the weeds are growing. Join us at our bi-annual garden cleanup as we remove the weeds, deadhead the plants and shake the poppy seedheads blithely about. Certified Horticulturist, Kathleen Irvine will be on hand to answer your questions about the California Native Plants and how to take care of them. Come help beautify our city and hang out with friends and neighbors!

Annual Willmore City Summer Potluck, Auction, and Fundraiser

The WCHA is looking for donations for the Annual Summer Potluck, Auction and Fundraiser that benefits the WCHA and supports our events and projects.  Among them, the Willmore Heritage Garden.  We also support two youth soccer teams and various Downtown Long Beach Events.

Last year’s event was great fun and a big success — you can ask any of the attendees!  This year the Fundraiser will be held on July 21, 2012 and adult beverages will be served.  The food is always delicious and the bidding fierce.  Please donate to this great event– it’s your chance to finally clean out your closets and organize your life!  It will leave room for you to pick up a new and wonderful piece of furniture!
