Planting Natives at Wilson Green

Thanks to Dane County's "Plant Dane" project, Blair Streeet Gardens received 56 native plants - asters, rudbekias, and coneflowers - most of which we planted at Wilson Green in early June. We will plant the rest at The Gateway Garden.

New Bench Installed at The Gateway Garden

We are pleased to announce that BSG has installed a second bench at The Gateway Garden. The bench honors Jeff Kuesel, one of BSG’s co-founders. Due to his tireless dedication over nearly 30 years, the BSG continues today. Jeff handled the administration and fundraising, and he spent endless hours planting spring bulbs and summer annuals and tending to the perennials and shrubs. Many of you will remember seeing him working in the Gardens in all kinds of weather during evenings and weekends. Thank you to all who contributed! The bench, designed by local artists Michael Burns and Kevin Earley, is made of white oak and aluminum.
