Harriet played a leadership role, in partnership with Plum Beach Garden Club, in the establishment of the Pollinator Habitat at Casey Farm.
A new garden in Updike Park will bring all-seasons beauty to the corner of Brown Street and West Main in Wickford. The once overgrown space is now a natural complement to the park’s Anne Wallau garden, thanks to the generous contributions of Kostas Karampetsos, proprietor of Tavern By The Sea, and Joe Kolb, owner of Wickford Wealth Management, pictured with PBGC President Kathleen Romeo and Linda Sollitto, PBGC Civic Beautification Chair (l to r). The club planted and will maintain the collection of fragrant shrubs and trees that were particularly chosen to appeal to people and pollinators.
Pictured above is how the shrubs and trees
will look as they grow into place.
