Established in 1988, this beloved neighborhood garden has provided shade, green space and produce for an active group of senior gardeners for more than 20 years. Named after the garden’s founder, the site contains a large lawn and gathering space for events, raised planting beds, where vegetables are grown and harvested by local residents – including an impressive supply of late-season collard greens, peppers, eggplant and tomatoes. The front of the garden features a selection of plants, such as butterfly bushes, verbena, Echinacea and St. John’s Wort – designed to attract butterflies and other pollinators. In the back of the site, rain barrels collect water for garden maintenance and a large picnic table is used for informal gatherings.
