Ongoing projects: Gardens, container plantings and tree planting
Village Gardens and Container Plantings
On November 10, 2018, we planted 30 more trees on West Main Street, with help from about 70 community members including Dryden Beautification Brigade Dryden Rotary Club William George Agency Dryden High Interact Club Girl Scouts Department of Environmental Conservation Urban and Community Forestry Grant paid for the trees and supplies The Village Department of Public Works dug all the holes and brought fresh topsoil to backfill the trees The Dryden Fire Department watered in all the trees Ithaca City forester Jeanne Grace advised about tree species and locations, and gave the tree planting tutorial Students from Mrs. Vorstadt's Dryden High Gourmet Cooking class baked 7 dozen muffins for the volunteers Dunkin Donuts donated the coffee and donuts
Our last planting using funds from this grant will be completed in the Dryden Elementary School neighborhood in April 2019, when we'll plant 25 more trees. Stay tuned for the date and then come out and help plant! No experience required!
