Steele Creek Neighbors Complete Planting in Library Garden

(August 31, 2006) Last weekend, about two dozen library supporters and employees planted one tree, 75 shrubs, and about 200 perennials in the Steele Creek Library Garden. The garden is well on its way to becoming a key spot for library activities, especially those involving children. Jennifer Brown, owner of Wolf Tracks Designs Custom Landscaping Design and Consultation in Charlotte, chose the plant types and designed their placement.

The Steele Creek Library Association has plans to add a sundial, birdfeeder, and birdbath in the next few weeks. Several trees in the original garden have died and need replacing. Supporters also hope to get a Garden Committee organized to keep the garden up.

A few weeks ago, Realiscape Landscaping Service prepared the beds at a reduced cost and Blue Max Materials donated two loads of garden soil. Childress Klein Properties, developer of RiverGate, also made a contribution.

The garden preparation and plants have cost approximately $7,000, and the Steele Creek Library Association is requesting donations to help meet the cost.  Any amount would be welcome! If you would like to contribute, please send your tax deductible check, payable to Steele Creek Library Association, to:

Steele Creek Library Association
PO Box 38218
Charlotte, NC 28278-8218

If you are interested in joining the Garden Committee or have any questions about the Library Association, contact Linda Blackwelder at llblckwldr@bellsouth.net.
