MGV interns renovated two parking lot beds at the Carnegie Library in Washington C. H. Even while the Fayette MGVs were planting, the library patrons where commenting on the improvement.
The interns removed boxwoods from existing wooden raised beds that were causing damage to the building. Overgrown dwarf Alberta spruce were removed from existing parking lot beds and added new soil . Working with the head librarian they focused on plant material referred to in books the children were reading. For example, the Harry Potter books often refer to herbs.
In the spring, MGVs will find places for the boxwood and work with libraries to add signage that lists books that mention the plants.
