A hearty thank you to all the great garden volunteers who participated in our perennial planting blitz. During our five work days, we planted 620 (yes, six hundred and twenty!) plants and did a bit of weeding besides. Thirteen planting volunteers–Paula Burns, Michelle Detwiler, Mary Field, Joseph Garrity, Karen Hinckley, Martha Lombardo, Hazel Murphy, Melissa O’Connor, Linda Pitt, Ellen Reese, Toba Spector, Wendy White, and Ellen Briggs–donated a total of 48.5 hours to accomplish this feat.
In addition, Chris Bushnell once again donated his woodworking talents to frame and install our beautiful Wildlife and Respite Garden sign, which was designed by Ellen Reese and Gary Stein. Gary also fixed the gate hardware for us so it is now a pleasure to open and shut those gates.
