As the corner of Americus' East Furlow Street and Elm Street continues to blossom with activity at Rudy's Happy Patch Market and the Perry Wellness Center, so does the growth of nuisance weeks. Many teams are involved in watering the many colorful flower plots, and many other teams are busy weeding these same lots.
According to Jeff Williams, Creative Project Designer for Perry Wellness Center: "We have had some hot days in Americus. Although we water our vegetables and our expanse of flowers, we must not let the weeds take over. Many peer members spend hours maintaining this colorful and productive campus."
Here, talented gardener and leading plant manager Michael Harper does his part to maintain the center's expansive vegetable and garden plots.
