Talk about a good cause...

Do you know about the New Haven Diaper Bank yet? Because if you don't, you should.

This organization distributes about 30,000 diapers a month to newhavenbabies who need them. By purchasing diapers by the truckload, they substantially reduce the cost and are able to provide more diapers per dollar.

What can you do? Click here for donation or diaper drive information...or better yet, consider volunteering on one of the planning commitees for the Walkathon this October. Are brochures, press releases, and poster design right up you alley? Might I suggest the marketing committee?

For more information, contact Joanne by emailing information@newhavendiaperbank.org

Happy Mama's Day!

Happy Mama's Day
to all you
out there!

And special Mother's day wishes to a couple of newhavenbabygrandmas in Texas! (: Wish we could be there to give you a hug.


Peabody Plant Sale

So I think we will be at a birthday party...if the guest of honor accepts my very 
late RSVP...but if you are not at the ArtWalk in Westville this weekend, how about this?
5th Annual Butterfly & Bird Plant Sale
Saturday, May 13 at the Peabody Museum

New This Year - Gardening Seminars11 a.m. & Noon (details below)

Visit this popular Peabody event--outside under the big tent--for
great buys on plants and shrubs that will attract wildlife,
butterflies and birds to your garden. Experts will be on hand to
answer questions and explain how to create special wildlife havens.
They will also lead two seminars on enhancing wildlife habitat and
attracting butterflies to your yard.

Native as well as nonnative and non-invasive perennials, annuals and
shrubs that provide nectar for adult butterflies, food for butterfly
larvae, and seeds and berries for birds. All proceeds support
educational programs.

For the Kids: A fun planting activity will keep the children happily
occupied while parents shop.

On our agenda...

Admittedly, we haven't been doing much lately besides playing in the flower garden, and hanging out at the park and catching up with everyone we haven't seen all winter.

But, I had to update with our May weekend plans. After a very boring April, I'm feeling a little overwhelmed:

Bethesda Tag Sale and children's fair May 20th
Art Walk in Westville May 13th
Open Farm Day at Common Ground Farm May 6th
Leila Day Spring Fair May 20th
New Haven farmers market begins May 20th in Wooster Square

I know that there was a Children's preschool sale about this time last year...

What else is on your agenda?
