Large flower pots have been placed in the alley out back of Bread Furst (4434 Connecticut Avenue). And last Sunday, people were invited to “adopt” one.
The new caretakers will water, weed and eventually add plants to the containers of flowers and herbs selected to attract pollinators such as butterflies and bees. The planters also serve to beautify the alley and give apartment-dwelling neighbors a little place to share the joys of gardening.
A few orphan planters remain without caretakers. If you wish to adopt one, stop by Bread Furst and ask for Eun Yim.
