Summary

This was a quiet year of mostly stewardship for this emeritus Greenspace group working in Beecher Park. Early in the year, the group planted an elm with the help of the New Haven Garden Club as well as a redbud. Apart from these plantings, Bob and Kate Bradley singlehandedly stewarded the park, identifying needs and tackling them on their own. The Bradley's have been taking care of the park for years and continue to make it a beautiful place for library goers and Westville residents to frequent.
