Thank You to Bland Landscaping for Volunteering Here on Earth Day!

Hats off to Bland Landscaping! Twenty of their managers celebrated Earth Day on Wednesday, April 22 vounteering to lay a brick sidewalk, replace dead plants, repair the irrigation system, and replace the supports for the fruit trees. As if that weren’t enough, they also provided lunch for the many Joel Lane volunteers who stopped by to thank them for their hard work. In-kind donations were made by Custom Brick Company, Wake Stone Corporation, NCSU Forestry Club, Super Sod, Johnson Nursery, Archer Lodge Herb Farm, and Century Farm Orchard. We are so grateful to all the employees, especially Gail Ingram who suggested the idea to Kurt and Matt Bland, owners of the company.

What visitors say

Thank you so much for letting our IB Human Geography class come tour the Joel Lane house. I really enjoyed learning about how high-class people lived back them. I was surprised to hear that they were always working and had no time to themselves. I was also shocked at the size of the beds. They were so small! You two really played good parts and made me feel like I was really back in those times.
