A heartfelt THANK YOU to all of the Bigelow parents, students, faculty and friends who turned out today to plant, trim, mulch, clean, paint, and water. The school looks great!! The main entry and the island are planted, the courtyard cleaned up, shrubs trimmed and plant beds mulched.
The team moved 14 cubic yards of loam and mulch, planted over 130 shrubs and perennials, collected over 20 bags of yard waste and collectively donated over 300 hours of time!!
A very special thank you to Andrew Hargens and Lex Van der Ploeg for organizing the day, to Tami Ireland for leading the planting of the island, to Joe Raso for working with us to get the plants, and to Audrey Weissborn and Kathy Marsh for their ongoing care of the Bigelow grounds and gardens.
