GOOD TO KNOW BEFORE YOU ENROLL WHAT DO THESE SYMBOLS MEAN? NEW! First Time Offered Give it a try!

Spectators

Register First

All persons are required to register PRIOR to participation in ANY program. Registrations and fees cannot be handled at the sites by instructors or any staff members. Please be prepared to show your receipt at the first class session. Instructors have the authority to disallow participation until proof is given. Registration Information (page 50) Registration Forms (pages 52-53)

Ages Indicated A Cooperative Program Agreement with other local recreation departments or agencies.

“Time Out” Dates This is the date our staff checks class enrollment status. If the minimum enrollment has not been met, the class may be canceled. Yes, you can register in-person or by fax after the “Time Out” date if openings exist. To check class status call (414) 329-5370 (M-F 8 AM-5 PM). Remember to bring your receipt to first class for verification.

Early Bird Discount Register early and save!

Children must be the age indicated on or before the FIRST class session.

Self-care

In classes where caregivers are not required, children must be able to provide self-care in a group setting (ie: able to wash hands and use restroom facilities without assistance).

Starting & Ending Class Times

Our instructors need time to open facilities and prepare for your class. Please provide proper supervision as children “dropped off” before classes start will not be supervised by our staff. Instructors will call their class and take attendance. Parents should wait until this has taken place before leaving. Classes will end as scheduled. Instructors are either preparing for the next class or closing the facility; your promptness in picking up your child is necessary. Please do not arrive prior to 10 minutes before the start of your class as the locker rooms or class room may not be open before this time. If your program involves use of locker rooms, plan to depart no later than 10 minutes after the scheduled conclusion of your program.

Waiting Areas T-Shirt This program includes a t-shirt. Pick your shirt size when registering

Most facilities have a designated spot where parents may wait during classes. Please help us keep the privilege of use of these facilities by not wandering around the buildings, no food or drink, and please keep siblings under supervision.

Makeups Special Refund Note Due to the purchasing of supplies, requests for refunds, credits or transfers after the “Time Out” date will only be honored if your spot can be filled.

GOOD TO KNOW

Classes missed for individual absences (ie: illness, vacations, etc.) are not “made up,” nor may participants attend classes other than the one they are registered for.

One of the fundamental instructional program goals is to provide your child with a fun and positive learning opportunity with their peers while developing separation skills. Parents are welcome to observe the last scheduled class of the semester. (Exception: Swim lessons, spectators are permitted on the first day also.) For the best instructional atmosphere, observation of other class sessions is not permitted. Please feel free to discuss your child’s progress before and after class with the instructor. • Parent/Child Classes The spectator policy remains the same. Please make arrangements for siblings as they will not be permitted in the program location and may not be left unsupervised in hallway or locker room areas. • Adult Classes P  lease make arrangements for your children as they will not be permitted in the program location and may not be left unsupervised in hallways or locker room areas.

Round Up Sponsorships

The Department does not wish to exclude any City of Greenfield youth from participation on the basis of their ability to pay. There is an opportunity during registration to donate to help this cause by “rounding up” your registration fee to provide financial assistance for those unable to afford program fees for youth programs. A donation line is included on the registration form – you can donate any amount you see fit by adding the amount to your program fee total. Persons who feel they are unable to afford the cost of a youth activity may apply for a reduction of fees utilizing the “Round Up” Sponsorship donations which help fund these requests. City of Greenfield residents may apply for financial assistance by contacting the Parks & Recreation Department office at least one week prior to registering for youth programs.

AQUATICS Swimming & Water Safety Levels

The American Red Cross offers comprehensive course levels that teach your child how to swim skillfully and safely. Skills taught are progressive, so children advance upon completion of all the skills in the previous level. New to our program? Either enroll your child in Starfish (Ages 4-6) or Level One (Ages 6-9), or attend a swim pre-test session to determine which level is most appropriate for your child based upon their water skills. Levels

Requirements

Skills Taught

Parent/Child Swim

Ages 1-4 Years

Ratio 1:10

Each child must be accompanied by parent or caregiver

Parents and children learn together to increase a child’s comfort level in the water and build a foundation of basic skills, such as arm and leg movements and breath control. This level is fun-filled and helps introduce water safety concepts, encouraging a healthy recreational habit. If your child is not 100% toilet trained, they will need to wear a swim diaper under their swim suit. The water temperature is approximately 80 degrees, which may be cold for younger swimmers, so a long-sleeved swim/sun type top is recommended.

Starfish orients children to the aquatic environment and helps them gain basic aquatic skills that are the foundation for the later levels. Front and back floats, glides, and leg and arm actions are taught. Age appropriate water safety topics are reviewed. Seahorse builds upon the Starfish skills to help children gain greater independence in their skills and develop more comfort in and around the water. Bobs, retrieving objects under water, floating and gliding independently, treading water, and combined arm-and-leg actions front and back are the focus. Goldfish further develops the Seahorse skills so children gain basic swimming propulsive skills. Floats and glides into a vertical position, rotary breathing, how to change direction while swimming, treading water, and independent swimming on front and back strokes are the primary focus.

LEARN-TO-SWIM (AGES 6-TEENS)

Ratio 1:8

Introduction to Water Skills Level 1 teaches basic personal water safety and skills to help children feel comfortable in the water while learning elementary aquatic skills. Age appropriate water safety topics are reviewed. Fundamental Aquatic Skills Level 2 gives participants success with fundamental skills such as floating and recovering to vertical position. Participants continue to explore simultaneous and alternating arm action on front and back.

Stroke Development Level 3 teaches the survival float, elementary backstroke, breaststroke, backstroke and coordination of front crawl. Participants are introduced to dolphin kick, swimming in deep water, and basic diving skills. Stroke Improvement Level 4 develops confidence in previously learned strokes and increases distance swimming. Backstroke and breaststroke are further developed. Participants are introduced to butterfly and taught sidestroke. Stroke Refinement Level 5 refines strokes learned in Level 4 and increases distances of swimming. Participants are also introduced to front and back flip turns.

Swimming and Skill Proficiency Level 6 refines the strokes so participants swim with ease, efficiency, power and smoothness over greater distances. It helps prepare for more advanced classes such as Lifeguarding and Competitive Swimming. This level is unique to Greenfield Parks & Recreation to keep kids swimming. Stroke refinements, junior lifeguarding skills, and fitness swimming are just some of the things this level can cover all based upon the interest of the class.

AQUATICS PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT Swimming is a recreational activity that will last a lifetime. Learning to swim happens with swim lessons and spending time in the water during Open Swim for water exploration and play. As a benefit of enrolling your children in the Greenfield Parks & Recreation Dept’s Learn to Swim program, you are automatically able to attend our Open Swim time at no additional cost during the dates of your class, by showing your Learn to Swim receipt at the door. This benefit is for both you and your child who is in lessons (other family members will be charged our regular admission). You and your child can come to the pool to have fun while providing time for them to practice and develop their skills.

Private Swim Lessons

Youth (Ages 6+)- Adult Private swim lessons are designed to help meet the needs of participants who are seeking more individualized instruction. Teens and adults seeking to improve their swim strokes are welcome. One of our swim instructors will be assigned to work one-on-one with you or your child to accomplish specific strokes or skills during the class. Note: After the "Time Out" date, due to the scheduling of staff, there are no credits or refunds.

LITTLE NINJAS (Ages 3-5 years) Little Ninjas is an easy-to understand class for the younger child to gain the benefits of Tae Kwon Do. There will be emphasis placed on the physical techniques so the participant’s body can begin growing with the movements and burn up energy. The very basics will be taught, with additions of important outside aspects for children such as stranger self-defense and lost- in-the-store safety. CHILDREN (Ages 6-12 years) Children’s Tae Kwon Do is great for development of self-discipline and physical fitness. Children who learn Tae Kwon Do also benefit from increased self-esteem, more confidence and assertiveness, more focus and concentration, better discipline and self-control, respect for authority, self-defense, and physical activity. Children who study this art will learn when it is okay to use it as the code. The martial artist forbids unfair assaults or unnecessary use of force, so it is for emergencies only. TEEN/ADULT (Ages 13+) Tae Kwon Do is great for mental, physical, and spiritual development. Become more flexible, agile, and physically stronger while increasing balance. For a Tae Kwon Do practitioner, his entire body is his weapon, defending easily against all aggressors with their hands, fists, elbows, knees, and feet. FAMILY (Youth (Ages 6+) to Adults) Tae Kwon Do is a wonderful activity to practice as a family! Parents will have a great time working out with their children in the same class. Tae Kwon Do has SO many benefits for both children AND adults that it makes it the perfect way to stay fit and have fun TOGETHER. For adults, TKD helps to increase flexibility, relieve stress, strengthen balance and learn life-saving self-defense. In children, TKD helps to improve confidence, increase focus, build stronger physical skills like balance, coordination and agility, in addition to building great goal setting skills. No matter the reason for practicing Tae Kwon Do initially, students of the art benefit physically, mentally and spiritually. Practice Tae Kwon Do together but feel the benefits as an individual!

BULLY DEFENSE

Youth & Teens (Ages 6-16) Gain a new outlook on how to face bullies. Bullying is a national epidemic that begins with how a student views him/herself. As confidence grows, so does the strength to stand up to Bullies. In the class students will cover what bullying is and the various types of bullying, what to say to Bullies and how to defend yourself against common physical attacks. Prepare your child with the tools needed to be strong in a world where Bullies are real and can cause life-lasting effects. Saturday October 19 11:00 AM-12:30 PM 404030-21 Chosun Black Belt Academy, 7123 S 76th St., Franklin Limited to the first 20 enrolled. $5 resident or non-resident.

GERMAN HOME NEW! COOKING During the middle and late 19th century, Wisconsin and the Milwaukee area became the final destination of many German immigrants fleeing the Revolution of 1848.

Tonight, Staci will prepare a terrific menu with this German heritage in mind. You can sample all of these foods and take home the recipes to prepare for your family…Spinach Salad with Hot Bacon Dressing; Jaeger-Style Pork Schnitzel with German Potato Dumplings; and Versunken Apfelkuchen (German Apple Cake).

OLDER ADULTS 55+ - FITNESS PARKINSON’S EXERCISE CLASS

CHAIR FLEX & STRETCH

Vickie Strachota, Arthritis Foundation Certified Instructor Suitable for those who prefer a more gentle approach to exercise and want to improve mobility, strength, and balance to the entire body. Great for those with arthritis*, providing participants with a fun and beneficial exercise experience that can supplement, but does not replace, exercises prescribed by a doctor or therapist. This group exercise program has been especially designed and modified to incorporate a series of movements and proper exercise techniques to help increase overall stamina. Set to music to rejuvenate you, this class is done while sitting on a chair so the pelvis and hips are stabilized, enabling easier movement of the torso and arms without fear of injury or strain. Optional standing posture alternatives will be introduced as well, with the use of a chair for balance and support. No mat exercises or lying on the floor. Canes, walkers, and fitness poles welcome. Enrollment: Min. 7 / Max. 25.

WALK WITH CONFIDENCE

Vickie Strachota, Arthritis Foundation Certified Instructor Myth: Exercise puts me at risk of falling down. Fact: Regular exercise can build strength and stamina which prevents loss of bone mass and improves balance, thus actually reducing your risk of falling. Walk With Confidence is a structured social walking program that offers support to help participants develop successful exercise routines. Little by little, you will see improvements as you begin to strengthen muscle and improve balance–both important in staying active and avoiding falls.

Note: Please wear comfortable clothing, bring a water bottle and towel. Floor exercise will be incorporated; however, modifications will be provided for various populations and/or environmental conditions to ensure a safe and effective setting for all class participants.

GENERAL INFORMATION - LEGACY BRICKS As part of the City’s 50th Celebration Legacy Project in 2006, a fountain was placed in Bicentennial Park (51st & Layton, near the Law Enforcement Center, Fire Station and Library) as a centerpiece. Surrounding features include flag poles, benches, and a stone marker, all framed by a beautiful garden and landscaping. The outer area of the fountain is paved with bricks, providing a unique opportunity to make a lasting mark to:

• Commemorate your family’s place in Greenfield History • Remember a loved one • Honor a family member, friend or associate • Recognize an achievement • Celebrate a special occasion/event • Promote your business

The bricks are engraved using a laser process that will penetrate, melt and crystallize the clay brick, resulting in a permanent engraving. The money raised from this project will help fund numerous projects within the City of Greenfield Parks & Recreation Department. Orders are accepted throughout the year. Bricks are installed in either Spring or Fall. All contributions are tax deductible, pricing is subject to change.

The program is simple: if you have a healthy tree, between 10’-25’ in height, that needs to be removed, or you desire to have removed, please call us first! We will evaluate if the tree(s) can be relocated and utilized within a city park. Relocation expenses will be assumed by the Department of Parks and Recreation; however, special recognition will be given to those persons who sponsor the entire or partial cost of tree relocation. So if tree removal is in your future, please consider “Dedicate to Relocate” and contact the Department office.

Welcome to the Fall Edition of the GREENfield SHEET! At the time of writing this, we’re at the mid-point of Summer and the Fourth of July is behind us. A lot has happened, including hosting the Vietnam Moving Wall, Jansen Fest, a growing Ethan’s Run Against Addiction 5K Run, a variety of events at the AMP, our Sunday Farmers Market, and so much more. I hope you were able to enjoy the Greenfield Independence Day fireworks display this year as they were outstanding! A shout out goes to all of the volunteers, sponsors, staff and guests that make these events so special. With all these great events going on in our city, there’s still more to come. At Konkel Park, Brews & Bites, Live @the AMP, and Picnic in the Park are all winding down in August. There are two Car Shows scheduled for late summer/early fall, a final Movie in the Park in September, and the Fall Family Fest and Trick-or-Trot Run/Walk in October. As the growing season gets its feet on the ground, the Farmers Market promises to continue to be special through October. Finally the annual pilgrimage to Milwaukee of Harley riders from throughout the country (and the world) returns over Labor Day at the House of Harley. Please note that this year Layton will not be closed to traffic. Within the City, activity remains at a very brisk pace. At 84South, the Aurora medical building is set for its grand opening to the public, the Forte Apartments are substantially leased, and architectural review is being readied for August/September Planning Commission review. Additionally, 84South has driven nearby investment including new facade changes at Penny Mustard, a new credit union moving into the vacant bank near 84th & Forest Home, and a new Landmark Credit Union building replacing two old bars. Plans have been approved to ‘even off’ the commercial corridor on Holmes with a project along 76th Street. As part of that approval Holmes will be closed at 76th, shielding the large neighborhood to the west from commercial intrusion and cut through traffic. Interest in redevelopment at Spring Mall and near our portions of the Southridge commercial area remains active. All of this commercial activity and investment is vital to the long-term viability and success of our community. Elsewhere, significant discussions are occurring with regard to the Park and Ride/former Stadium Interchange parcel at 894 & Loomis and the old Knights of Columbus parcel on 103rd and Oklahoma. Our capital projects are in full swing right now, with Morgan Avenue between 43rd and Forest Home being the most intensive. When most people drive on a road they don’t usually think what is underneath it. The reconstruction of Morgan involves fixing a litany of utility, storm water, and drainage issues that have festered for years. Also getting new surfaces are parts of South 43rd and South 116th, with the later project fixing a surface that was installed wrong from the start decades ago. The County is working through its resurfacing of 92nd Street (a County Highway). If you have any questions concerning these, or other, projects, please contact Neighborhood Services. Finally, thanks goes out to County Supervisor Tony Staskunis and the fourteen Supervisors that joined him, as well as the Greenfield Little League, the Greater Greenfield Lions Club, our Common Council, County Park staff, our Staff, and many others for getting approval on the long-term cooperative agreement at Kulwicki Park. Greenfield’s enhanced role in operations and maintenance of this important treasure within our city make the City of Greenfield a Better Place. I hope you have already noticed dramatic improvement over the last year. Be prepared for more in the future! -Mike

A Memory Café is for individuals who are living with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), early-stage Alzheimer’s or other dementia and their care partners. This is a perfect opportunity for individuals to engage in a safe and fun way to share stories and socialize with others who have concerns about their memory!

Teen bedrooms can hide the signs of drug and alcohol misuse. Wake-Up Call is a lifesize exhibit of a teen’s bedroom with more than 20 “red flags” that can signal drug or alcohol use. The bedroom identifies spots where teens may hide drugs, household items that can be used as drug paraphernalia and ways teens try to cover up drug and alcohol use. Our goal is to educate parents and other adults who are influential in the lives of youth so they know what seemingly innocent items can actually be an indication of substance abuse.

Children can be seriously injured or die from heatstroke, especially young children. A car can heat up 19 degrees in just 10 minutes, and even cracking a window will not help. Here are a few tips to help prevent accidental injury or death from heatstroke: 1. Avoid heatstroke-related injury and death by never leaving your child alone in a car, not even for a minute. Always lock your doors and trunks – even in your driveway. And keep your keys and key fobs out of the reach of kids.   2. Create reminders by putting something in the back of your car next to your child such as a briefcase, a purse or a cell phone that is needed at your final destination. This is especially important if you’re not following your normal routine.  3. Take action. If you see a child alone in a car, call 911. Emergency personnel want you to call. They are trained to respond to these situations. One call could save a life.

UP-TO-DATE VACCINES Back-to-school season is here. It’s a time for parents to gather school supplies and backpacks. And it’s also the perfect time to make sure your kids are up-to-date on their vaccines. Getting children vaccinated is one of the most important things parents can do to help protect their children’s health—and that of their classmates and their community. Most schools require children to be current on vaccinations before enrolling to protect the health of all students. Today’s childhood vaccines protect against serious and potentially life-threatening diseases, including polio, measles, whooping cough, and chickenpox. When children are not vaccinated, they are at increased risk of disease and can spread diseases to others in their classrooms and community—including babies who are too young to be fully vaccinated, and people with weakened immune systems due to cancer and other health conditions. Check with your child’s doctor or the Greenfield Health Department to find out what vaccines they need this year. For example, kids who are 4 to 6 years old may be due for boosters of four vaccines: DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis, also called whooping cough), chickenpox, MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella), and polio. Older children, like pre-teens and teens, may need Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis), HPV (human papillomavirus), and MenACWY (meningococcal conjugate virus) vaccines. In addition, yearly flu vaccines are recommended for all children 6 months and older. Parents can find out more about the recommended immunization schedule at www. cdc.gov/vaccines/parents. Adapted from https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/events/niiw.

RESTAURANT INSPECTIONS The Greenfield Health Department is responsible for enforcement of local and state codes related to the inspection and licensure of all food-related businesses. Inspection reports for both Retail Food Establishments and Restaurants and Food Service may be found at: http://healthspace.com/ Clients/WI/Greenfield/Web.nsf/home.xsp. While these reports provide information on the conditions observed by the Environmental Health Specialist at the time of inspection, they may not reflect corrective actions or current conditions. An inspection conducted on any given day may not be representative of the overall, long-term operation of the facility. Therefore, visitors to this site are cautioned against making interpretations regarding a particular facility based on only one report. While every effort is made to keep the information accurate, the City of Greenfield is not responsible for discrepancies between posted information and the actual inspection reports provided to the licensed establishment.

The City of Greenfield has partnered with SeeClickFix to announce a new platform (called “Greenfield Resolve It”) that will allow citizens to report quality-of-life issues and request City of Greenfield services. With free SeeClickFix mobile app and web tools, Greenfield citizens will now be able to provide department staff with pictures, videos, specific descriptions, and more — valuable information needed to get the job done efficiently. In addition, the SeeClickFix platform provides Greenfield officials with a centralized issue management system to manage issues from creation to resolution — engaging Greenfield citizens throughout the process. This partnership not only allows Greenfield citizens to report problems, but also to view, comment on, and vote to fix problems submitted by their neighbors. Citizens can even create their own “watch areas” to receive notifications about all the issues reported in their community, enabling them to follow the progress of all service requests — not just the ones they report. The Greenfield Resolve It mobile app is available for download on Android and iPhone. In addition to the mobile apps, citizens can send reports to the Greenfield’s website and seeclickfix.com.

About SeeClickFix SeeClickFix was founded in 2008 to empower citizens with tools to publicly document quality of life concerns in their neighborhoods. By radically improving the quantity and quality of this data, SeeClickFix was quickly adopted by local governments, who needed a better way to receive information from citizens. This exchange helped to build one of the largest neighborhood networks in the world upon which public agencies and public citizens engage to improve communities. Today, SeeClickFix has official partnerships with hundreds of cities, engaging hundreds of thousands of citizens in the resolution of millions of issues. SeeClickFix has worked with government partners to develop municipal management tools on top of this citizen network. As SeeClickFix is adopted into the everyday lives of government users, the benefit of the engaged citizen base continues to grow.

ISO Class 2 Greenfield Fire-Rescue became an ISO Class 2 department on March 1, 2019. Greenfield Fire-Rescue underwent an ISO (Insurance Services Office) re-evaluation this fall (last done in 2008 – we were previously rated Class 3). Less than 4% of US Fire Departments receive a Class 2 or better ISO rating. By no means is an ISO rating the single determinant of a department. Nonetheless, certainly a sense of improvement and pride but we will not rest on it. We will continue to improve, evolve, and with an emphasis on safety.

CRIME PREVENTION

HOLIDAY SCAMS

The Greenfield Police Department offers many crime prevention and community outreach services. Dozens of useful links are available at the Police Department’s Community Service Page on the web at: http://www.greenfieldpolice.org/community/community.html. Community Service Officers are available to help in forming block watch groups and attending neighborhood meetings and community events. Contact our Community Service at (414) 761-5337.

Since it’s the holidays, the scammers are setting their sights on you to finance their New Year. They are hoping that your finances are tight enough that you would believe you are an instant winner of a contest you never entered and all you have to do is cash the check they sent you and wire it back to them to cover the taxes. Needless to say, it is a bad check and your bank will hold you responsible for cashing it. These notices will come in the mail, e-mail, or text messages and they may even be on letterhead and they will look legitimate. Do not fall for it!

SNOW EMERGENCY

So...Thanks to the past for getting us here. Thanks to our partners that play a role in our ISO rating and many of our other initiatives; Greenfield Police Department -Dispatch, Greenfield Public Works, Milwaukee Water and Mutual Aid/Shared Services departments. Thanks to our Mayor, Elected Officials for giving us the means and latitude. Thanks to our members for our continuous improvement and the service we provide. Thanks to our #community for the support.

Non-emergency Police (414) 761-5300 www.ci.greenfield.wi.us

When a Snow Emergency is declared, the City notifies the media outlets in the Milwaukee area. During a snow emergency, parking is completely prohibited on major streets and any cars found on these streets are cited and towed. Snow emergency streets include: 27th Street, 35th Street, 43rd Street, 51st Street, 60th Street, 68th Street, 76th Street, 84th Street, 92nd Street, 104th Street, 112th Street, 116th Street, 124th Street, Morgan Avenue, Howard Avenue, Cold Spring Road, Layton Avenue, Edgerton Avenue, Grange Avenue, Ramsey Avenue, College Avenue, Loomis Road, Forest Home Avenue, Beloit Road, and 31st Street between Edgerton Avenue and Grange Avenue.

DON’T LEAVE YOUR CAR RUNNING With the cold weather, some people will warm their cars prior to beginning their journey and others will allow their cars to run when they make a quick stop. This is an easy target for car thieves. When you leave your car, turn it off , lock it up, and take your keys with you. Do not leave your car unattended when it is running.

AUTISM AND SPECIAL NEEDS REGISTRY

BEFORE SENDING MONEY, DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR? • Are you sending money to claim a lottery prize? • Are you sending money to help someone get a large sum of money out of their country? • Are you sending money because a relative called from another state or country and told you that they need help? • Are you sending money because you were “guaranteed” a credit card or loan? • Are you sending money to someone you have not met personally? • Are you sending money to someone you’ve never met to pay for their trip to America? These are just some examples of scams being perpetrated using money transfers. If any of these sound like your situation, please call the Greenfield Police Department at (414) 761-5301 for advice.

Leaves should not be put out after November 4th if you’re in District 1, 4, or 5 or after November 11th if you’re in District 2 or 3. Yard waste pick-up is extended through November 22nd this year. Leaves will NOT be collected if they: 1. Include ANY other material such as branches, stones, grass clippings. 2. Are blocked by parked cars or other obstacles. 3. Are placed too far from the road edge or curb edge. They are not to be placed in ditches or in driving lanes. 4. Are left in an alley or on a median. Residents are strongly encouraged to mulch their leaves. Residents may also drop off leaves FREE of charge at the Division of Public Works, 4551 South 52nd Street, in marked bins on the south side of the building. This service is for LEAVES ONLY. Leaves must be in biodegradable paper bags or emptied from containers. For more information call (414) 761-5374, weekdays from 7:00 AM to 3:30 PM.

SAVE TIME RAKING... MULCH YOUR LEAVES! Chop those leaves with your mower Take the grass catcher off your mower and mow over the leaves on your lawn. You want to reduce your leaf clutter to dimesize pieces. You’ll know you’re done when about half an inch of grass can be seen through the mulched leaf layer. Any kind of rotary-action mower will do the job, and any kind of leaves can be chopped up. With several passes of your mower, you can mulch up to 18 inches of leaf clutter. Feed your lawn to speed up the process Once the leaf bits settle in, microbes and worms get to work recycling them. Microbes do a better job recycling carbon from leaves when they have nitrogen. Fertilizing your lawn in fall will help break down your mulched leaves faster. Your grass will grow better, and your microbes will work harder, when you feed your lawn after mulching those leaves. See great results in the Spring When spring arrives, you’ll notice something. The leaf litter you mulched up in the fall will have disappeared. Your rake will look dusty and neglected. And your grass will look greener than ever. Mulching saves money and is a better use of resources When you rake your leaves, it costs you. Your local taxes pay for workers to pick up your leaves and haul them away in trucks. Burning leaves is not allowed. Mulching leaves simply recycles a natural resource, giving you richer soil for free. LEAF COMPOST / WOOD MULCH FREE wood mulch and composted leaves are available for self-serve pick-up daily at the Division of Public Works yard, 4551 S. 52nd Street, and west yard, 11701 West Morgan Avenue. For more information, call (414) 761-5374 weekdays from 7:00 AM to 3:30 PM. Leaf compost is available for home delivery to Greenfield residents for $50 per truck load.

Yard Waste Pick-Up is Extended Through November 22nd this Year.

PLAY-TO-LEARN PLAYGROUPS Do not Remove, Plant or Prune Anything in the Right of Way Without Permission

Three Seasons at Radler’s Botanic Garden Wraps Up in September

A small area between your property and the city street is actually owned by the city, called the Right of Way. Residents are required to mow and keep their adjacent ROW clean, however any trees and shrubs planted in the ROW are owned by the City of Greenfield and maintained by the Department of Public Works. Residents shall not remove, prune or plant anything in the ROW without expressed written permission by the city of Greenfield. Individuals removing, pruning or otherwise destroying trees in the city ROW without permission will be prosecuted. To find out exactly where your property and ROW boundaries are, go to the city of Greenfield web site, press the GIS/Maps menu button and enter your address & tax key. You should see a map of your property with the Right of Way (ROW) boundaries clearly marked.

The Greenfield Beautification Committee and Will Radler are presenting a new garden experience this year. For the first time they will allow viewing the gardens in the Spring, Summer and Fall. The final garden event, showing the garden as Fall approaches, will be:

Mulching & Yard Waste Arborists know the single most important thing you can do for tree health is to maintain a 3 inch layer of mulch over the roots. To help you with this, Greenfield provides a high quality compost free to residents and available from bins behind the Greenfield Public Library Did you know your turf can benefit from yard waste compost too? Instead of raking grass clippings and leaves, use a mulching mower to grind them where they lay. Returning grass and leaf clippings to your lawn will reduce the need for artificial fertilizers and in most cases result in healthier more disease resistant turf. Returning leaves and clippings and occasionally aerating your yard will greatly improve soil structure and bio activity in the soil, making it a better environment for roots of all types. You might also consider using a yard waste grinder to grind grass, leaves and even small branches into a very good mulch for your tree and flower beds. You can reduce hours of time spent raking and many dollars spent on fertilizer and fungicides for your landscape by returning valuable organic matter back to your yard. If you still have Yard waste, pick up in Greenfield concludes the week of November 18-22, 2019.

Friday Sept 20th (twilight 6:30-8:30 pm) Will Radler the nationally renowned developer of the Knock Out® family of roses invites guests to enjoy his extensively landscaped property. The two-acre expanse includes his rose test garden and spectacular ornamental areas. Various water features accent the experience and showcases his beloved goldfish.
