The Greenspace Conservation Commission held its annual Fall Fete October 15th on the beautiful grounds of the Brady Inn. Each year the board seeks to highlight Madisonians giving a little extra green boost to our shared environment. The awards recognize that residential yards and gardens as well as commercial landscapes help beautify the community, soften the structures, and balance the pavement.
