October 2021 Update

We’re thrilled to share that we received a $5000 local operating grant from USA TODAY NETWORK’s A Community Thrives initiative!  A Community Thrives, which is part of the Gannett Foundation, supports non-profit organizations like ours with projects focused on community building.  This grant will go to support the construction of a visitor center and restroom facility.  This grant combined with the challenge campaign brings us to a total of $12000 for the project. We are optimistic the facility will be operational by opening date next April.

This summer has been a gardener’s dream with more than ample rain during the entire growing season.  The Garden is flourishing with only a few exceptions of too much water.  We are currently constructing a perennial garden, refreshing existing flower beds and identifying new areas for planting .  Feel free to visit the garden and mark your calendar for our official opening scheduled for April 22nd of next year.  We look forward to seeing you soon!
