Town gar­den­ers be­gin their beau­ti­fy­ing

Stanstead Journal - - CLASSIFIEDS - Vic­to­ria Vanier, Stanstead

Stansteadis one step closer to gain­ing a fourth flower from the Fleu­rons du Que­bec or­ga­ni­za­tion when they visit, this sum­mer, to re-eval­u­ate the town’s three flower rat­ing. A co­or­di­na­tor and a group of novice gar­den­ers have been hired by the town to spruce up the town’s pub­lic gar­dens and parks as well as dig a whole lot of new gar­dens on town prop­erty. Last week, the new work­ers be­gan their new work ex­pe­ri­ence by putting in shrubs and peren­ni­als in front of the Stanstead Cul­ture and Recre­ation head­quar­ters at 10 Phelps Street. The town’s Beau­ti­fi­ca­tion Com­mit­tee is be­hind the ini­tia­tive to gain a four flower rat­ing from Fleu­rons du Que­bec; tourists are of­ten at­tracted to highly-rated towns or base their ex­cur­sions on th­ese flower rat­ings.
