We're so grateful to station volunteer Gail Carroll for all her work researching the best low-maintenance, drought-tolerant plants WMNF could grow in the narrow strip between the sidewalk and busy MLK Blvd. - perennial peanuts.

Thanks so much to Gail and the wonderful volunteers who worked so hard the last three weekends, to prepare the soil and plant more than 300 plants.

And thanks to Paul Carroll who laid in the temporary drip irrigation we'll use until the plants get established and can fend for themselves.
