North Capitol Main Street Plant-A-Thon -- Tomorrow, Saturday, June 21, 2008
See this message from Pat Mitchell, Bloomingdale resident and president, North Capitol Main Street, Inc.
Earlier this year, North Capitol Main Street (NCMS) was awarded a Neighborhood Investment Grant to make physical improvements to the North Capitol Street corridor.
Over the past month, handsome wrought iron tree-box guards were installed to match the existing wrought iron fencing in the median strip along parts of North Capitol Street. Even though the fencing is up, we're not quite ready for plants yet . . .
Question: How do you transform 28 trash-glass-and-weed-filled tree box spaces into 28 spaces with beautiful plants that bring year-round beauty?
Answer: With a little help from our friends . . .
