A small strip of land along Main Street, between the Kimball Library and the home just north of it, received a facelift last week.
FFA students volunteered their time and labor last Friday, May 4.
Kimball FFA alumnus Ben Stockinger, owner of Stockinger Lawnscape Solutions, used his equipment for the "heavy" work. He also donated his labor as well as all the plants and landscaping. (And he gave up part of his birthday Friday to do this.)
Together, they tore out the old bushes and mulch, laid down landscaping fabric and new mulch, and planted new shrubs.
The city will take care of watering the new plantings for the first four to six weeks, until they get a good start. After that, neighbor Pete Warner will keep them up.
KAHS teacher and FFA advisor Tracy Nelson supervised the project.
EDITOR'S NOTE: One way to express your gratitude for their hard work would be to stop by the high school this Saturday, May 12, during the Kimball All-City Garage Sale for the FFA plant sale. Only 50 cents apiece, and the money helps to fund FFA projects.
