Neighbors adopt Civic Center garden

Peter Glaser, organizer of the Civic Center garden neighborhood crew

A group of neighbors has come together to care for the demonstration garden in front of the Morton Civic Center. The garden was planted in June as part of the City’s North Shore Channel Habitat Project. More than 50 varieties of native wildflowers, grasses, shrubs, and small trees were selected for their value to birds and pollinators—and as inspiration to local gardeners and landscapers.

The stewardship group is planning to work every Thursday at 5:30 for half an hour or so. Pulling crabgrass and digging a trench around the border have been the main tasks so far.
