What a way to end the summer for this group. The Newhallville Ambassadors Youth Crew did a phenomenal job planting a Tilia cordata 'green spire', Little Leaf Linden tree in front of the senior center. They helped Ms Louise weed out the square in front and planted some Agastache. They also watered and mulched the whole area. La Tanya and her girls, Layla and Tianni were a big help, as was Ms. Dorthea. Ms. Louise baked some delicious brownies to celebrate! Thanks to Cindy and Matt for appearing just in time to help set up a shade tent for the team. After the volunteers left, Ms Louise and I took an inventory of the plants we planted and dreamed up some plans for the future, including a magenta knock out rose. A huge thanks to Ms. Louise for all her hard work, dedication, and knowledge sharing this summer. What an inspiration!
This was our final day of the summer, and the group went out strong. They finished planting the perennials and shrubs in the Oasis, completed the dust path, and added another yard of mulch to the oasis. We ended the day with a pizza party and appreciations to all. The group plans to keep meeting this summer to water and steward the site!
