If you haven’t walked past the Berry Center this week, you’ll be in for a surprise! On Monday morning, the green roof was just a flat, brown, gravely space. But two days, five landscapers, three hoses, an interview, a photo shoot and 4,400 individual plants later, the Berry Prairie is officially installed.
Visit the Berry Prairie
The Berry Prairie is free and officially open to the public! But all visitors are required to stay on the path - plants are tender and small, some of them only an inch high, and won’t fare well under a stray boot or flip-flop.
Below are a few photos of the progress and the planted product. Plants may appear spaced out, but many of them will double, triple, quadruple or more in size over the course of this summer and coming years.
Signs, pamphlets and other educational additions are in the works – stayed tuned!
