Join Us for Phase 3 of the Downtown Mulching Project!
Date: Friday, December 1
Location: 4th Street Intersections
Beautify Our Downtown Together
What's Happening: Phase 3 of our Downtown Mulching Project is here, and we need your help to make it a success! We'll be continuing to mulch the intersections along 4th Street to enhance the beauty of our neighborhood. It's a fantastic opportunity to give back to our community, meet your neighbors, and enjoy some fresh air. Phase 1 was on Earth Day Clean and Green Day in April. Phase 2 was in September - see before and after photos below!
Why Mulching Matters: Mulching not only adds an aesthetic appeal to our streets but also offers various benefits, including:
- Weed Suppression: Mulch helps to suppress weed growth, reducing the need for herbicides.
- Moisture Retention: It retains moisture in the soil, helping plants thrive during hot summer days.
- Soil Improvement: As mulch breaks down, it enriches the soil with essential nutrients.
- Erosion Control: Mulch helps prevent soil erosion during heavy rains.
What to Bring:
- Gardening gloves
- Shovels or rakes (if you have a favorite)
- Sunscreen and hats (if it's sunny)
- Your enthusiasm and community spirit!
Be Part of the Transformation: Let's come together and make our Downtown area even more beautiful. Bring your friends and family, and be a part of this exciting project.
Follow Us: Stay updated with the project's progress and share your mulching photos on social media using #DowntownMulchingProject.
We look forward to seeing you on December 1st for Phase 3 of our Downtown Mulching Project. Together, we can make our community shine!
