WILLIAMSTOWN — The Williamstown Bee City USA Committee has begun laying out plans for the Armstrong Garden at Fifth Street and Highland Avenue.

“We would like to put in a landscaping garden and photography garden,” said Committee President Marty Seufer on Tuesday.

Seufer said that on Saturday, he and other committee members will begin pulling out the old plants and weeds.

“Any volunteers are welcome; we will start at 9 a.m.,” Seufer said.

The plants being pulled up are being given away to anyone that wants them. Saturday they are focusing on removing the daylilies.

According to Seufer, they will begin planting in spring.

“We want to get a few classes involved and use the garden as a way to teach people what plants to plant for pollinator,” Seufer said.

The Williamstown Bee City USA has a Facebook and Instagram page for anyone to follow, which will show progress being made and inform those interested in learning about beekeeping or pollinator gardens.
