After many years planting, weeding, and watering the Triangle flower garden on Morris Street, the Mexico Federated Garden Club is giving up the project.
Laura Pitts, president of the club, said they have only 10 active members and ranging from 70 to 90 years of age. "We can't maintain it the way it should be taken care of," she said.
In the plot now are the Common Milkweed, Butterfly Weed, among others.
Pitts said the club would like to have some organization or group take over next year or sooner. "It is a visible area and we hope some group will continue with it," she said.
The Triangle is owned by the city of Mexico. Chad Shoemaker, director of Parks and Recreation said the city does not have the manpower to work in the plot. He said the city would like for another group to take over the project. "We appreciate the Garden Club for their work. We appreciate them for making it look great," he said. He added the city would like for someone or group to come forward and keep the Triangle there for the community.
