Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico - The Puerto Vallarta Garden Club (PVGC) has a busy summer ahead.
Because of their supporters' generosity and the success of various fundraising events, as well as the hard work of the garden club's board and volunteers, very soon you will be able to see dramatic changes in Puerto Vallarta; from the north end of Avenida Mexico to the south end of Olas Altas.
Here's the PVGC's latest newsletter:
Greetings from lovely Puerto Vallarta. Summer has arrived and what may be for you the "low season" is, for us, the PV Garden Club AC, the "high season" with an enormous work volume ahead of us before the beginning of the rainy season:
We see "big" ... 200 new planters to be installed, mainly square, about 35 cm high to allow the application of more tiles and to allow the planting of more beautiful ground covers around our trees and bougainvillea.
This will facilitate our watering efforts, help retain the water more efficiently and, last but not least, avoid people and animals trampling our plants to death.
The streets with a new face will be:
• Calle Insurgentes, both sides
• Calle Francisco I Madero, both sides
• Calle Ignacio Luis Vallarta, both sides
• Calle Olas Altas, both sides
• Avenida Mexico, both sides from its beginning up to Calle San Salvador
Once the masonry work is done, we will take out all of the existing ground covers, fill up the planters with new compost, replant what we have and fill up the gaps with new durantes, crotons, hibiscus and, where necessary, new bougainvillea and palm trees. Then the rain can do its blissful work and you can enjoy all of the beauty you will be seeing upon your return.
We, in the meantime, will examine carefully whether our present budget allows the hiring of a company to take care of our planters and to give our trees and bougainvillea a professional pruning on a regular basis. We are in the process of examining various financial proposals. But this will be a topic to be reported in our next communication.
Have a wonderful summer and think of us.
The PV Garden Club AC Board
