Garden Club of Montclair members Anne Stusnick,Luce Battsek and Fran Ackerly work with Montclair Business Improvement District employees Dylan Blackwell and Richard Capers to plant annuals in Church Street flower beds.
Every year the Garden Club of Montclair beautifies the downtown area by planting tulips in the fall and annuals in the spring and summer. This year, in collaboration with the Montclair BID (Business Improvement District), volunteers from the Club have completely renovated the raised planting beds on Church Street. Large overgrown evergreens were replaced with a fresh planting that includes Rutgers Hybrid Dogwoods, shrubs, perennials and annuals. The project took place May 18 and 19.
