    On Friday, employees from Scripps Networks Interactive came to work at the Garden as part of the company’s participation in a national service day to commemorate September 11. Led by BBG arborists Chris Roddick and Travis Wolf, the group took on the important task of weeding and mulching the two allées of Liberty Oaks lining Cherry Esplanade, which were planted in remembrance of the events of September 11, 2001, and in honor of those who lost their lives that day. BBG is grateful to the volunteers for helping to beautify the area for those who will be visiting the Garden Tuesday to observe the anniversary of the tragic events.
    Kathryn Littlefield is BBG's Institutional Funding Manager.
