BASF volunteers recently brought new life to flower pots on Bockman Way, Main Street, Liberty Square, and East Maple, in Sparta, by cleaning out overgrown weeds, adding new dirt, and planting flowers. After a BASF employee who frequently traveled the streets noticed the flower pots needed maintenance, BASF received city approval to adopt the project, and employee volunteers spent two days, in June, beautifying the area.
