Fairview Pathway – plants of interest

Clean-up and planting on the pathway at Fairview and 10th will begin soon. See below for a list of plants of interest; let us know if you have extra of any of these in your garden. We’ll put your name and plants on a list and let you know when they are needed.

If you’re on the ENA’s email list, watch your inbox: when we see a break in the weather, we’ll have a clean-up party to remove brush. Please bring gloves, pruners, shovels, and other garden tools.

    We have lots of old fashioned orange day lillies. Would you like them? They like the sun, are ok with neglect, and I believe all parts are edible (though would advise checking on that before eating)!
