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 for touring us around the Joel Lane House. Our architecture and the way we live has come a long way throughout the years. You really gave us great information on what life was like back when Joel Lane was alive. They lived in very harsh conditions with no heat or air condition which would be very tough today. I appreciate all your help and time put in to tour us around the house.
