The Prescott Journal - January 8, 2003

By Astrid Strader, Project Supervisor, Horticulturist, and Garden Designer

Well, we're nearing the end of Prescott Blossoms 2002, and I thought it would be a good time to review what has been planted. One-hundred and four trees and shrubs have been planted to date at the Heritage River Trail Arboretum. Not all of these have been sold or "adopted", as I like to think of it.  Donors are needed to adopt these trees at the $500, $300 or $100 level, and you can go into the municipal office to see which trees and where they are exactly located (or call 925-2812).

            Chart #1 lists all that has been planted to date, while Chart #2 lists those remaining to be planted.  These eighty more trees will go in sometime in spring 2003, when Prescott Blossoms hopes to return under a new partnership with the St. Lawrence Shakespeare Festival.  Not only will youth continue to work on beautifying projects around town, but will assist in staging the festival plays which will run from June 26 - July 24 at the Sandra Lawn Harbour Amphitheater. It's absolutely limitless what creative team building can accomplish - and why not, with so such talent all around us.

Although it's all under a blanket of snow, people have been remarking that the increased pathways should really help to promote the park, exercise and fresh air.  There's also much anticipation of the new park benches, which will be placed strategically along the trails. Indeed, this promises to be a very exciting year ahead for Prescott.
