Summary

The White Street Greenspace group worked its inaugural summer to improve the streetscape of White Street adjacent to the Hill Health Center parking lot. The group expressed a desire to improve the visual appeal of the street, and to that end we removed concrete in order to create two new tree pits for planting a hawthorn and a purple plum along with colorful perennials. We also planted flowers around an existing dwarf evergreen at a neighbors house, and watered copiously.
