WATSONVILLE — Pajaro Valley Historical Association just got a fresher look thanks the volunteer efforts of Watsonville’s K&D Landscaping.
Recently a crew spent the better part of a day updating the outdated landscaping at the front of the home. They also provided fresh, new plants for numerous planters around the property on East Beach Street in addition to infusing mulch around parts of the of the historic Bockius-Orr House.
Jamie Strange, K&D Marketing Director, said the work is part of the company’s ongoing efforts to better the community by “giving back.”
“Here at K&D we have a passion for landscaping and improving the great outdoors,” the company said. “The idea of sharing this passion with our community sparked a conversation in the office in late 2016. During one of our staff meetings, the team came up with the idea of a monthly community beautification project.”
While K&D donated much of the materials and all labor for the PVHA project, the local businesses Vision Recycling-Mulch, Bay West Nursery-Plants and Whey 2 Grow-Fertilizer also pitched in.
The Pajaro Valley Historical Association was established in 1940 in Watsonville and the Bockius-Orr House has been the headquarters since 1997.
