Yardmothers break ground on school beautification project

Article Image Alt Text

Hornet Fairy Yard Mother, Lola Gholson, Karter Morris and Caden McLaury get the flower bed ready to plant.

It has taken the better part of the past couple of months, but the Hornet Fairy Yardmonthers began to really get things moving with its citizen-run beautification project, addressing the grounds at Aspermont ISD.

The Yardmothers is a community group consisting of nine local women led by Belinda Hecht, as well as several volunteers, donators, and business owners with a goal of improving the curb appeal of the school district.

Students became involved prior to the summer break and several community members have reached out by making cash donations, purchasing plants like red yucca, desert willows, or double knockout roses — which can be planted in memory of a loved one — or by grabbing their tools and lending a hand.
