Green Apple Day of Service
On Saturday, September 27, Russell Cave staff, Green Team members and families, and community members worked in the garden on several projects, including rain barrel and plant installations in our pollinator garden. The Green Apple Day of Service is organized through the US Green Building Council. Scott Southall, a landscape architect from CDP Engineers, was our consultant and co-organizer. Materials were donated by Leachman Landscape Design, Gault Lawncare, CDP Engineers, Wild Birds Unlimited, and USGBC. Water and healthy snacks were donated by Whole Foods of Lexington.
