Over the past month, four UMass Amherst students of the Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning department have been analyzing possible sites for the design and planting of a pollinator garden in Springfield. They visited Mason Square Branch Library to determine the current conditions and possibilities for planting. Ultimately it was decided to concentrate efforts on the Mason Square Library site. Over the remaining weeks of the semester the students will further research and finalize a design for the site, returning in the spring to proceed with planting.
We can use some help on Friday, December 2nd from Noon – 3:00 PM to prepare the garden for planting this spring. Please join us if you can! Just come to the Mason Square Branch Library, 765 State Street, Springfield. The garden is in the rear of the building.
