spring things!

So far this spring the CPP team has been laying the groundwork for another season of urban habitat creation.

Sixteen species of native perennials planted last winter by Terry, Anne, and Daphne are up!

Gardens we planted last season are looking pretty good! Hannah and I did a check up on eight of the gardens and found that most of the plants came back and in most gardens weeds are still suppressed. Our mini-nurseries are having mixed success.

We got some donations! Local landscape architect and CPP volunteer Leanna Sweetland gave plants including echinacea, liatris, and Joe Pye weed, along with one million pots for starting more plants.
