Bloom where you are planted! It's a bit of advice that seems especially fitting in our town. We've taken it to heart, and pay special attention to the landscaping around our stores.
Here's a glimpse of one of the gardens at the West Sixth Street store (maintained by Todd Baker of Brown Co.) also known as the Near West Side location, named for the nearby NWS neighborhood.
Many thanks to Ferrol Johnson of Abundant Harvest Farms for the small garden in the trough. Ferrol has also planted donated gardens at fire stations in Bloomington. Listen here to an interview about the project at community radio station WFHB.
