Volunteers help transform Century Center Skyway

Posted:

Volunteers worked together on step one of a new project in the Century Center Skyway. The houseplants that lined the Skyway have been removed to make a year round herb garden.

Today soil was removed from the beds so a drip irrigation system can be installed along with new organic soil and plants.

The herbs will be grown and harvested by Green Bridge Growers and co-founder Jan Pilarski says they will sell the herbs to downtown businesses.

She says the Skyway is a perfect area for a herb garden and she hopes the public will be excited to see the finished project. "I hope they'll say 'wow, this is really a green space, this is a vital area, it's part of South Bend's revitalization, a real contributor to downtown."
