Volunteers Needed Naturescaping in Southampton

Southampton has been awarded two Neighbors Naturescaping grants through Brightside St. Louis. This is our third consecutive year of receiving grants to help develop the green space in Southampton.

This fall we will be expanding to the Buder Wedge across from Buder school and the Hampton Wedge south of Carrollton Bank. Work days for preparing and planting begin Saturday September 20th and will culminate in the planting on October 11th. If you are interesting in helping please contact Michael Wohlstadter at garden@southamptonstl.org.
