2019 Greenspace Report

Annex Gardeners was started this year because the group wants the entryway to their neighborhood to look more cared for and welcoming. They made a lot of progress towards their goal this season in a short time. They got the site mowed, pruned trees, pulled vines off trees, and spread mulch. They also spent time advocating to the state and city to share the maintenance responsibilities for the site. They have a vision for the whole street to be beautified with pollinator plants.
