Passion and a Dare by Suzanne Daub


looked out over Madaket Beach one recent sunny Saturday morning and noticed two people moving purposefully up and down the sand. I thought these early risers might be vacationers staking out a prime plot for a day at the beach or perhaps they were beachcombing, looking for shells and sand dollars. But as they came closer to the parking area where I stood, I saw that instead of swimsuits they wore long pants and gloves. Instead of beach towels they carried large trash bags. Their neon t-shirts were emblazoned with “Clean Team,” marking them as members of a very dedicated group of volunteers who help keep our pristine island clear of trash. The man behind this effort is William Connell. Every June for more than 50 years, this California resident has traveled east to the summer home he loves on Nantucket Island. “I love the independent spirit here, the architecture, the history, the theatre… what really brings me back are the friendships we’ve made with people from Nantucket. There’s a commonality of spirit among those who are here,” he explained. Connell speaks of Nantucket with passion, and it is that passion that led him to form The Clean Team. Passion and a dare. “It drove me to distraction to see all the trash on the roadsides here, so I made a habit of stopping and picking up the big things—it was a visual-aesthetic thing for me (I still do it). A Nantucket neighbor of mine in 2003 wrote a letter about me to the Inky, about me picking up the trash, and in it he wrote that ‘we all owe Bill a great vote of thanks.’ “But what the neighbor who wrote that did not know is that another neighbor of mine also saw me [picking up trash] and HE said to me

‘I see you out picking up things all the time. It’s great, but it’s meaningless and inefficient. It’s meaningless unless you leverage yourself: you’ll never clean this place up. You’ve done Milestone Road, but what have you done for Sconset Road?’ “It was mean, but he was right — it was like a dare. I knew what he was saying…Nantucket is under siege…I needed to be organized… so he’s really the father of The Clean Team. “I wrote back to the Inky referencing the letter from John Berman, and they published my letter. In it I asked for people to join me. I put in my email and phone number, and a handful of people, maybe ten, wrote and called. Two were Grant Sanders and Dr. Sarah Oktay. I said to them ‘let’s meet at 8 am on Saturday at the corner of Nobadeer Farm Road and Milestone,’ which was a hotbed of mess. Grant went toward Sconset; Sarah went toward Old South Road; and I headed back toward town along Milestone. We met in an hour and had so much stuff! We stashed our bags along the route, and I picked them up and took the bags to the landfill.” Now, 15 years later, there are more than 400 volunteers on The Clean Team email list, and every Saturday (rain or shine) from the end of April through October a few dozen of them gather at a location Bill chooses. “I look at the map and pick a spot that we radiate around. I mix it up so we alternate among beaches, roadsides, parking lots… and now we also have volunteers in town. The town volunteers meet at The Handlebar Cafe. Jason Bridges coordinates in town and graciously allows us to store the supplies for town at The Handlebar. We average 10 people in town every Saturday and 25 out of town... One morning, when we were cleaning out around Altar Rock, 56 people came.” Continued on page 70

Growing Roses in Containers D by Hilary Newell

id you ever walk through a garden center and see a plant that you just fell in love with and said to yourself “I wish I had room for a garden big enough for this!” It’s true (at least at my house) that a large percentage of plants are purchased without a clear plan of where we are going to fit them in. But when it comes to container gardening, it pays to have a plan. I love a container with lots of different types of plants in it, but sometimes I crave the simplicity of just a single type of plant. That’s where roses can come into the container gardening arena. You can grow just about any rose in a container, and sometimes it’s necessary to do that temporarily, until you have prepared the perfect spot. But some roses are better than others if you are looking for a long season of continual bloom. Climbing roses are not a great choice for containers (unless you are providing a trellis), nor are hybrid teas (too fussy). Grandifloras and heirloom varieties, though beautiful in their own right, have a very short bloom time. But there are some great varieties that are delightful in containers. Before you start, be sure you have a pot of sufficient size, no less than 15” in diameter and at least 12” deep. All container plants require drainage holes in the bottom. You should also have a good pair of gloves to deal with thorns. A pair of good pruners is helpful too.

For a long-blooming cascade of flowers over the side of the pot, find a rose that is labeled “groundcover.” Rainbow Happy Trails® has lots going for it. Single, golden yellow flowers with a broad pink edge appear freely from spring through fall. Small in stature (12-18”) but wonderfully scented, this would work well in a container that you might walk by regularly. With a spread of 30”, you can just plant one per pot. Red Meidiland® is another very hardy and disease resistant rose. It is used on difficult slopes and in rock gardens, where the arching canes root and spread. With a very long bloom time from late spring through fall, this beauty makes a statement when you plant it in a container. It will only reach about 24” tall and will fill a pot as large as a whiskey barrel. Be sure to place the container where you want it, as you will not want to move it after it is planted.

Growing Roses...Continued from page 12 Easy-care Knock-Out roses have been around for many years, and they are very satisfying. The only problem is if they are left unpruned, they continue to get bigger every year, ultimately reaching six feet tall and six feet wide. The original breeders saw an opportunity and they came up with a new series. Low, spreading Drift® roses have been improved to be perfect for containers, as they have all the good traits of Knock-Outs, but they only grow to 18”. At this height, they are good at filling empty spaces, spreading around larger specimens. Peach, Pink, Coral, and Sweet Drift® will bloom from mid-spring until the first hard frost. Many groundcover roses lack that one defining rose trait – scent. But the Drift® series has a few notable scented varieties: Coral and Sweet are both sweetly fragrant. “Flower Carpet” roses are another line of groundcover roses that are hardy to Zone 4 or 5, depending on the specific variety. There is a good range of colors including scarlet, pink, amber, coral, red, and yellow. Distinctive to this series is the size of the clusters. Single flowers bloom in six-to-eight-inch bunches of up to 20-30 flowers. Perfect for a traffic stopping container plant! Care of groundcover roses is a bit different from other garden roses. They still prefer full sun, and will thrive there, but because of their disease resistance, they can survive well in partial shade though there will be fewer flowers. Like other roses, groundcover roses prefer rich, well-drained soils. In a pot, use a potting soil that is specifically for containers. Leave an inch or two of space below the rim of the pot so you can water by placing the hose head right at the soil. Overhead watering is not recommended for these or for any roses, as wet foliage promotes diseases. One of the great

benefits of groundcover roses is that they do not need to be deadheaded! They will continue to bloom regardless. Hardy down to Zone 3, these robust plants should easily survive the winter if they are well-prepared. Stop feeding your rose by early October. This will keep them from putting on soft new growth that could easily be damaged by cold temperatures. You can reduce, but not eliminate, watering at the same time. After the first hard frost, let the leaves fall off and move the pot (if you can) to an unheated area that is not in the sun. Keep an eye on it and don’t let it dry completely. Normally, our Nantucket winter weather consists of enough rain to keep pots like this watered. Be careful that your rose doesn’t sit in standing water, as this will encourage the roots to rot while they are dormant. As spring approaches, and before new growth appears, cut back your rose by about two-thirds. Move it back to its full-sun or part-shade spot and begin to fertilize when you start to see new growth. This encourages full plants with tons of buds and blooms. Every gardener I know has their own recipe for success with roses, but every one of them includes regular fertilizing and good water management. Rose-Tone is a tried-and-true rose fertilizer that is in my garden shed. Follow the directions on the label and do not over-fertilize. Not only is excess fertilizer bad for our environment, you aren’t doing your plant any favors by giving your plants more than they need to grow. Growing roses in containers has lots of benefits. They can live for many years with relatively little care. If you are challenged for space, they can offer a big punch of reliable blooms. Movable containers also offer the chance to have some fun experimenting with colors and textures with a minimum of labor. You can place pots near seating areas or a place you walk by often, or on a small deck or patio, or you can make one a focal point right in the garden. Regardless of where you put them, they will provide instant appeal and beauty from spring through fall.

There is a structure to the one hour a week that The Clean Team works. Bags, gloves, and pickers are supplied so volunteers never have to touch the trash. Connell makes assignments within the chosen out-of-town area. “I scatter people… we have a leapfrog system,” Connell explained, “those who have arrived in cars I send a distance away from the meeting point. We never do this in one big group so that we cover a linear space by dividing it up into rough segments… then you grab your bag and go… NO FRATERNIZING… We want you to collect, not chat,” Bill chuckled, “some of our volunteers have been asked if they are on work-release.” “Then at 9 am sharp, the DPW shows up and they weigh our ‘catch of the day’ and pick it up and take it to the landfill. Every year we pick up six tons of trash! It’s a great cooperation between private citizens and the town.” Bill emphasized how much fun his volunteers have during these weekly one-hour cleanups. “Some mornings are exquisitely beautiful and calm with the sunshine and the

waves! And it’s terrific exercise. Volunteers bring their guests, their kids, their grandkids’s like a treasure hunt,” said Bill, “and the kids are good: they’re closer to the ground.” Several of the regular volunteers agree wholeheartedly with Connell that this Saturday morning cleanup is more than just a chore. “It’s gratifying,” commented Annie, who compared it to an archaeological dig. “It makes you feel good doing it; it’s good for the community; and it’s great exercise,” added Rob, “and it’s just an hour a week.” Libby chimed in with “Bill really is the glue that holds all of us together. His weekly emails are great fun. He calls the people who can’t make it out here every week but who clean up around their neighborhoods ‘add-junks’,” she laughed and added “Be careful if you’re driving behind him ‘cause he still stops to pick up trash along the roads.”

Most of what The Clean Team picks up are small items: straws, coffee cups, pull tops, beer cans, and many, many plastic water bottles. Last summer they found a 35-pound metal pole with a handsome metal placard from New Brunswick, Canada that had floated to Sconset Beach. “The ocean brings a lot of trash to us…one of the most difficult clean-ups was in ‘Sconset… On the road that passes The Summer House down toward the old Navy Base there was a wooden boat that had been destroyed in a storm, and the debris was very, very heavy. It was difficult to haul it all up to where the DPW could pick it up. That one day we did work more than one hour.” Sometimes they find treasure: a winning scratch ticket ($2), a $50 bill, coins, and “one morning a little girl helping us at Jetties Beach came to me and said ‘Mr. Clean, I have something for you.’ I opened her hand, and there was a Continued on page 71

bleached and crumbled but intact 10 dollar bill.” Wallets, credit cards, and drivers licenses found by members of The Clean Team are turned over to the Nantucket Police Department. “There’s a depth of emotion that people show for this place. You can see it in locals and in summer people… take the Conservation Foundation: the people who created that, who recognized that this place has to be preserved. So many families were so generous, giving land… People help each other here, and there is tremendous pride in the people who are part

of Nantucket. That is part of what lead to the clean up and what keeps it going.” The Nantucket Clean team occasionally receives donations: “Donations would not be deductible though they will be put to good use,” but, said Connell, “we’d rather have donations of time. With another person or two, we could do so much more! Come when you can — that’s our motto — we’d be thrilled to see you!”
