As you may have heard, we have a volunteer project going along our Pleasant Street parking lot to plant wildflowers. It should be an impressive, traffic stopping display in a few weeks. Right now Fidelis Landscaping is donating their services for site preparation. It looks like it will be ready for EHS volunteers to follow up with tweaking, seeding, and regular watering.
The Fidelis crew at work this past Wednesday, and the site today. A lot of progress for one evening.
The purpose of this project is not just eye candy and team building. It's an effort to do something that we can all feel really good about; helping our pollinators to help feed our kids and future generations.
We'll keep you updated on things and announce when we'll need some help out there. Until then, please enjoy the show.
