Speech School Garden – Teri Alston

Improvements – working with landscaping companies for bids (Planters and Sol Terra landscapers). The plan is to take out overgrown bushes, replant greenery that requires less maintenance. Ongoing irrigation system fixes are taking place. Funds will be taken from Mimosa budget to pay for improvements. Let Terri know if you have suggestions for plantings. Spring work day TBD based on when replanting will take place
