The Friends Invasive Plant Action Group had been busy over the past years removing Garlic Mustard and Buckthorn from the Wildflower Garden. Once the majority of that work was done, upkeep was turned over the the Garden Legacy Stewards and The Friends group moved outside the Garden to the surrounding buffer zone where work continues.
