Fall Cleanup by Upper Cape Tech Students!

Upper Cape Tech landscaping students clean NMLC's front beds.We are blessed to have the Upper Cape Cod Regional Technical High School right here in our back yard.  This week, they helped cleanup NMLC’s front yard!  Students from Upper Cape Tech’s Horticulture and Landscape Contracting shop came out and weeded, raked, dug, cleaned, trimmed, smoothed, and swept our front gardens.  And the results are fabulous!

Check out this cool tool for weeding!The Upper Cape Tech’s Horticulture and Landscape shop is new program that prepares students for many job opportunities, both in and out of doors. Horticulture deals with fruit and vegetable plants, foliage plants, flowers, trees, shrubs, and turf. In Landscape Contracting students learn the art and science of planning, constructing, and managing landscape spaces. Students study plant materials, planting design, plant maintenance, business management, soils, plant nutrition and pest control.

We are so grateful to these students, as well as to their instructors Joshua Greeley and David Consalvi, for improving NMLC’s “curb appeal”!  Thank you!
