Now that most of the planting has been done, the garden is really taking shape.
On April 13th, Ellen Reisinger, Linda Frank, and Fred Lanoue completed the point irrigation system.
Then came "mulch day", April 16th. Jen Brown, Environmental Education Specialist, arranged with Boy Scout Troop # 135 to help in the garden as their service project. The plan for the day was to get the new plants mulched. The scout group, from Ganada, TX, was absolutely amazing! It was hard work, and they got more accomplished in a couple of hours than we could have done in a day! They even made sure that all the mulch was cleaned out of the trailer & off the parking lot, and that all the tools were collected when they were done. We certainly appreciate their help!
The pollinator garden is an on going project. If you would like to be involved, please contact us. For more photos, visit our photo gallery.
