Fourteen members of the Horticulture and Forestry Club visited the Main Library on Saturday, April 5, to provide some much-needed attention to the first- and second-floor plant beds. Members took out dead plants and leaves, planted new plants from their greenhouses, and added fresh dirt and mulch to the plant beds.
Many thanks to club president Matthew Brooke, vice president Nathan Jahnke, and the rest of the club for helping to keep the plants and trees at the Main Library healthy and growing.
