Come see the new rustic Cedar arbor at Imagine Garden!

Thanks to Zach Montgomery and a group of volunteers for installing a Cedar arbor at the Imagine Garden.

From Zach’s Facebook page:

“The first installation of the year is this rustic, whimsical version of an arbor. These Cedar (juniperus virginiana) posts, rails and slats were harvested locally and represent nearly of 1000 square feet of Blackland Prairie that can be repopulated with clump grasses and herbaceous perennials.”
