In the true spirit of a community coming together and business helping business, I was the proud recipient of Rome's Clean & Green new program: Green It Forward. Over the past several weeks our building has undergone an exterior transformation. Check out YNN - they sent a reporter to capture the planting day: http://utica-mohawkvalley.ynn.com/content/603277/an-old-school-is-transformed/
And the planting hasn't stopped! We will be planting some mums (from Lowe's) for color, the city has sprayed the area with grass seed, and due to the generousity of Olney's, Lowe's and ACE, we have some planting materials left over which we will use to spruce up our neighbor - Subway's Sandwich Shop - this sunday. We will Green It Forward to improve our neighborhood and community, while helping out our fellow businesses.
