2018 Year in Review

2018 was a great year for the Bonnycastle Homestead Association!
We continued with our Soup and Salad events, and added a little outdoor variety with a beer tasting and a butterfly garden.  We enjoyed participating in the usual neighborhood happenings, like Bardstown Road Aglow and Sherby.  We continued with our community beautification and reforestation, first with a vine-cutting service, then this October with a renewal of our tree planting.  We got 65 trees in the ground this year!  Enjoy some of the pictures of BHA in action.


We had great tree planting on Saturday!  52 new trees in the ground in our neighborhood. 

Thanks to all the homeowners who are contributing to keeping Bonnycastle green and thanks to all the volunteers who gave up a Saturday morning to help us plant.  Pictures will be coming soon.  We can't wait for next year!

To all the homeowners who got a new tree, below is some information on tree care.  Please let us know bonnycastlehomestead@gmail.com if you have any questions!

Vine Removal

On 16 June, BHA sent teams of volunteers out into the neighborhood to help homeowners remove ivy growing up large trees, choking them and compromising their health.  We couldn't be happier with the results and are so thankful for all our participants!

Here is a statement from a satisfied resident:  Thank you all so much for removing the ivy from the evergreen on our condo’s property!  Your volunteers did a wonderful job, and we really appreciate everyone’s efforts.  Thank you for working to keep the Bonnycastle neighborhood beautiful!
