Sowing Our Wild Oats 2009 was a huge success!!!! Due to the overwhelming generosity of The Dunes Community, The Indies, and The Dunes Condos we were able to purchase just over 2000 plants to help build our sand dunes. Sand dunes are natural protection for our community and habitat for our local wildlife. These dunes protect us from storm surge, which can cause irreparable damage to this beautiful community. This is the third year we have planted sea oats with our winter guests, owners and friends of our community.
It took two days of hard work by these wonderful men and women but we got all of the plants in the ground just before the rain. We laughed a lot and met new friends while we planted each day. On Friday after our planting was complete we gathered for a picnic donated by Gary and Kathy Bergmann for everyone who gave of their time to help us get plants in the sand. Thank you all for your help and generosity. I will keep you updated on the growth and development of our Dunes.
