2020 Greenspace Report

Shepard St got a lot done this summer, with 2 planning meetings and 7 work days, thanks to Jody Kelly's continued faithful leadership. A lot is also thanks to new volunteers and neighbors to the green space, Claire, AJ, and Tony. Claire began working as soon as it was warm outside to remake a perennial bed, add container vegetable gardens, and install bird feeders and bird baths. Claire put in a lot of work to amend the soil. When the Greenspace program officially began, Jody, Claire, AJ, and Tony were ready for big plans and a lot of work. They trimmed all the bushes, mulched the entire space, cleared the invasive species, and planted over 100 Liriope (4 in plugs). The green space looks wonderful, and the group, in partnership with Addie the block watch captain, is looking to work with neighbors on the streetscape as they just received a new sidewalk. The Shepard St Greenspace group also worked for five Thursday evenings this fall to clean up their street scape by weeding, spreading mulch, and planting some beautiful perennials, including liriope, iris, catmint, and hostess. Addie Kimbrough, the block watch captain, was a major help in this. Working on the streetscape brought several new families to join in the work. We ended the season with an outdoor potluck.
