Summary

The summer of 2009 was the eighth season that the Troupe Group has been a part of the Greenspace program. Over the years, the group worked in curb strips, vacant lots and front yards. This year, returning as an emeritus group, members worked to steward the work of previous years. The team is made up of gardeners, green thumbs, and some friendly neighbors. The efforts of the group can be admired on Beers Street, Platt Street and Elm Street.

Other activity
