Thank you PI Beautification!

The center Island planters are beautiful

PI Beautification members, island volunteers, gardening enthusiasts and Wolf Hill Nurseries gathered in early July to install, plant, and celebrate the completion of a the Center Island Planter Project which adds a splash of style and natural color to the island’s hub.

The new horticultural display includes seven, 600 pound commercial grade planters designed to protect the roots of plants from the summer heat and from the bitter cold of Plum Island winters.

The group worked with Wolf Hill Nurseries to select an attractive assortment of plants that could survive in very exposed seashore conditions.

The project was paid for by islanders. Over $3,000 was raised! PI Beautification purchased a planter in memory of the six families that lost their homes in the storm of 2013.

Thank you to Dave Williamson for the use of his parking lot and for donating all of the water to maintain the plantings. Verne Fisher at Visionary Landscapes, LLC for the placement of the planters. And a very special thank you to all of the volunteers for watering all summer long!


Valerie Isaacs moved to Plum Island from Cambridge last year, captivated by the dramatic skies and lost-in-time architecture of the island. Valerie has a background in architecture (BA Penn State '87), grew up in Charleston, SC, and lived and painted in Spain, France, and Italy prior to Cambridge. She offers commissioned house portraits (see The Monte above) and landscapes of island scenes, and can be contacted through her website valerieisaacs.com .
