Downtown Greens readies to rewild part of the upper garden

From Downtown Greens:
Thanks to the generous support of Keep Virginia Beautiful we have the funding to rewild our Daffodil Hill right here in our upper garden!
This is the hill that folks entering our fine city see when coming from Rt. 2 or Rt. 3.
Not only do we want to make it a beautiful native meadow because it’ll look amazing but we also want to remove all the invasive plants growing on the hill and replace them with native plants that will be a boon to our ecosystem!
But what about all the pretty daffodils? Have no fear, the daffodils will remain in their home and their blooms will ring in the spring! Once they have died down for the season, a gorgeous and diverse native meadow will pop up and provide us with blooms through the fall!
This native plant instillation will be meadow style and will be a huge boon to our pollinator and native insect population which in turn is a huge boon to the rest of our wildlife, which in turn is a huge boon to us humans!
Plant removal will be Thursday, September 8th, 3-7pm and Saturday, September 10th 9am-12pm.
Meadow installation will be Thursday, September 15th, 3-6pm and Saturday the 17th, 9am-12pm.
If you are able to help us, please feel free to RSVP by emailing [email protected].
