phase 2 mulch

Join Us for Phase 3 of the Downtown Mulching Project!

Date: Friday, December 1

Time: 10a-12n

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!
