Pigeon Point celebrates Earth Day


From staff reports

The Pigeon Point community celebrated Earth Day last week with several events organized by Stephanie Braswell and the Beautification Committee. All the activities took place at Christensen Park.

Master Gardeners Lisa Holt and Lily Cooper planned the annual plant swap and giveaway. Even people with no plants to give were welcome to take some home. Thanks to the master gardeners’ hard work, there was a great variety of interesting plants on site and experts to identify them and discuss their care.

Meanwhile, a crew of neighborhood volunteers, including city councilman Mike McFee, were busy planting a garden, spiffing up the grounds, and clearing out the trees of Spanish moss.

A display was set up to demonstrate composting, a simple method that benefits the homeowner, the soil and the environment. Composters are available from the county. Information was also available on collecting rainwater. It was a beautiful day to be celebrating our Earth.
