TBUG LOVES Theatre Cafe!

Turtle Boy Urban Gardening Crew

The excellent people of Theater Cafe fed us a fantastic lunch after Sunday’s TBUG event. Everyone had a great time, the food was marvelous. We can’t thank them enough.

Go visit their website or better yet, go visit them for lunch.

Thank you again, Theatre Cafe! You are awesome people!

a little birdie told me

so- word on the street is that there is some group calling themselves the Turtle Boy Urban Gardeners? TBUG? wow, I am so excited to meet these urbanites. Worcester is really an amazing place. Where else could a simple boy like me get such attention. Well, I look forward to a little sprucing up of the joint. I mean, plenty of people have left me things in these bushes, or even stopped to take pictures of my turtle in search of the sea. If memory serves me right, this group did brighten up the space last year. I just hope the weather holds out, and that a few SONG birds appear with new Turtle Boy inspired tunes. One never knows what will happen on the Common in Worcester.

Come get dirty with Turtle Boy!


The city is dropping off a load of compost for us on Friday, so we are now a rain or shine operation! Shovels and rakes would be helpful if you have them. Please wear closed toe shoes and garden gloves for your safety.

Join us for a little spring clean up of the garden around everyone’s favorite Worcester landmark. Last year was a lot of fun, we hope to see you out there for TBUG 2011.

Where and when?
Sunday, May 22 · 10:00am – 12:00pm (Rain date: May 29)
Turtle Boy statue – corner of Franklin and Front Streets in Worcester, MA
RSVP on the Facebook page

Operation: Turtle Boy Urban Gardeners! (TBUG)

Turtle Boy Weeding Party - June 2010 Bring any garden tools you might have. We hope to go a step beyond weeding this year and add a few plants, so it would be much appreciated if you could bring a gallon jug of water as there is no spigot and hose available.

This is a family friendly event, but we did encounter some urban nastiness hidden in the plants last year, so be advised. Also, please wear closed toe shoes for your safety. Gardening gloves are also a good idea.

I know stART on the Street is scheduled for the same day, but hopefully you can get to do some gardening early and still have plenty of time for artsy stuff!
