Garden planting extravaganza in Tyrone

Recently, the Rotary Club of Tyrone and Women’s Club of Tyrone along with the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy hosted a garden planting extravaganza in Tyrone.
Volunteers met at the Burger King parking lot and also at the Tyrone American Legion parking lot to complete landscaping work.
As with all Conservancy gardens, these are community inspired and are planted and maintained by volunteers.
It is a magical transformation when seemingly overnight blooming flowers appear at key highly visible locations throughout areas such as Tyrone, including at intersections and highway medians.
According to a Western Pennsylvania Conservancy press release, the organization has helped develop hundreds of greening projects in over 170 communities in 20 counties of Western Pennsylvania since 1972.
In each location, a dedicated group of community volunteers such as members of the Tyrone Rotary Club and Tyrone Women’s Club make the planting possible. The change over towns and regions across Western Pennsylvania could not take place without the thousands of volunteers who help make the gardens a reality each year.
The purpose of the gardens is to add visible and vibrant assets to communities, making them more attractive places to live, work and raise families.
