New educational signage
New educational signs were erected at the Gardens this week by Graphic House. These are educational signs made possible by an Urban Forestry grant from the Wisconsin DNR. Thus one is on Tree Canopy Development. Others are on Invasive Species and on Insects. One on Storm Water Control will be installed after construction of the Potager is complete.
