Just got an email from MyRWA about the herring viewing open house hours. This is makes me feel better about the health of a river that runs through Somerville, and I appreciate the work these folks do for our green space.

Want to see a wildlife migration in your own backyard? .

If yes, head to the Mystic Lakes dam in Medford on the three upcoming open house days to learn about the river herring migration and to see the migration firsthand. Your support has helped this migration rebound--with 71% more herring spawning in the Mystic Lakes since 2012. Now you can check out your impact on:

Monday, May 8, 3:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Tuesday, May 16, 3:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Saturday, May 20, 12:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
The dam is located at 517 Mystic Valley Pkwy Medford, MA, 02155 United States. We hope to see you there!

Preparing the Soil for Gardening

Gretel Anspach, a Lifetime Master Gardener with the Massachusetts Master Gardener Association, will discuss preparing soil for gardening.

The quality and make-up of soil has a huge influence on how well plants will do in the garden. Unlike sunlight, air, and water [the other 3 requirements], we can’t tell whether our soils are right for our plants by looking at the soil, and sometimes not even by looking at our plants themselves. During this informative presentation, we will learn about soil structure, compaction, fertility, and pH, and how we can modify these for a more successful garden.

All Somerville Garden Club meetings are free and open to the public. There will be also be garden Q and A, light refreshments and a raffle. 7-9pm. Meetings are held the at the Tufts Administration Building, (TAB), 167 Holland Street, second floor, wheelchair accessible. Parking is available, and the building is a ten-minute walk from the Davis Square MBTA stop.
