Seeking bulb-planting volunteers for November weekends

Thanks to the initiative of one of my neighbors, Stacey, in Beverley Square West, there will be 300-500 daffodil bulbs available for planting on the grounds of P.S. 139 along Rugby Road, and in the new tree pits along Cortelyou Road.

The bulbs will arrive at the end of October, in time for November planting. Stacey and I thought we would try to coordinate some plantings the first and second weekends in November. Stacey will be at the Greenmarket TOMORROW, October 14, from 10am to 12noon, tabling with free 9-volt batteries for smoke detectors. If you can stop by, you can sign up for one or more days. If not, you can "vote" in the poll at the top of the sidebar on this blog to let us know which day(s) you could help out.

How exciting.
I had hoped something like this would happen. I am available the second week in Nov.
I wonder if we could also try to get the local merchants to adopt a tree.
I think it’s terrific that we have new trees but the weeds under them are a mess.

We have a whole bunch of daffodils to plant but we've held off because we thought the warm temperatures would cause them to break dormancy and sprout prematurely. I wonder if our concerns are valid?
