Dozens of Bristol-Myers Squibb employees recently helped till, plant, and water part of St. Michaels Farm Preserve in Hopewell as part of a three-year pilot project that involves planting native flowers and grass in 5.25 acres of the preserve in order to cultivate the seeds in bulk. The project, conducted by D&R Greenway Land Trust through a Natural Resource Conservation Service grant, will later distribute the seeds in the tri-state area to green sites such as New York’s Fresh Kills Landfill.
