We planted 3 trees! 2 Eastern Red Cedars and 1 Northern White Cedar (native). The trees now shade the vernal pool which will become more habitable by various local wildlife (shade cools the pool down). The highschoolers really did an amazing job and we couldn't have done it without them.

Created a mulch bed on the right of the site abutting the chainlink fence for some increased edge definition. We did some minor planting of gift-plants from a neighbor. The day was very hot and we were all thankful to finish.

We planted 3 coral bells at the entrance of the bike path to balance the plantings on either side (at the base of the stone pillars). It was a short but good day.

We fully cleared out the area behind the midbridge garden (removing knotweed "stumps" and 2 small tree stumps) and laid a weighted tarp down to suppress growth and prepare the site for further planting. The other existing planting beds of the area were further weeded and maintained. The existing birch tree was extensively pruned to create un-impeded walkways.

We started off the summer by weeding and mulching down the front beds of shrubs and perennials. Things are looking very good and the plants have been very well cared for! A great start to the summer
