On Sunday-12-November Bogota Beautiful had a Fall Preparation event for the planters on W.Main St. Volunteers from Bogota Beautiful, Bogota High School along with Councilwoman Daniele Fede worked on the planters. They remove the old & dead growth and, unfortunately, some debris that was throw into the planters. They also did a quick pick-up of debris around the area as well. Next the soil was aerated and loosened to help the roots systems to air out as well as allowing water to get into the plants. Finally a layer of mulch was spread on top of the soil to freshen the look of the planter. The mulch will also provide a layer of installation to protect the plants from the upcoming winter weather.
